The low UnUsed numbers indicate that FSM is working fine.

ISTM you are VACCUMing too aggressively.  You are reclaiming less than
1% and 0.005%, respectively, of tuples.  I would increase FSM settings
to ca. 1000 fsm_relations, 100000 fsm_pages and VACUUM *less* often,
say every two hours or so.

... or configure autovacuum to VACUUM a table when it has 10% dead
