I know what you are saying . Most side stones don't form an ideal sealed box . .

They certainly don't if they aren't in the correct place! (tic)

Ahem...note the trimming :-)

Only the "in correct place " from a particualr 21st C view , not the original builders view . They avoided that box , to the extent the box not only had clear intentional gaps , sometimes it didn't even have any sides .

Do you think Mulfra was open one side or like Chun?

If it was just the backstone that collapsed 18th C? and nothing else was removed then it looks like there would have been plenty room .

Because of Zennors drawing i looked at mulfra in that way, everyone thinks it was a sealed box just like chun when it could in princible be a mix between chun and Zennor, and the collapsed stone maybe wasn't sealing a box but further away like other places, it all works on site.
