If there was not tv or a router in the rooms when FiOS was installed then the installer would have had no reason to install a bigger splitter and as was stated, the more splits, the bigger the signal loss.

I know it varies by ONT but when I got mine installed (2006) the signal out of the ONT was so strong they put attenuators on the line. The same result could be managed by using a 'too big' splitter.

Attenuators were used when VZ was supplying an analog signal. That has not been the case for several years now.

Ahh, didn't know it was due to the analog signal. Good to know.
