Interesting question for me

My answer is that when you have small orbitals that do not overlap, like 4f, 
mixed with larger orbitals, then they do not contribute to the conductivity.

So optical gap is smaller than electronic gap

You can check wikipedia;

What is the basic difference between optical band gap and electrical band gap?

Dear Wien Users,
what is the difference between electronic gap  and optical gap ? and how to 
determine lectronic gap  from the optical properties ?

Best wishes
