In this video when water is being sprayed upon on the hood, it didnt leave any circular water spots like in the picture you posted. is that still consider as beading? or no, there is no remaining sealant/wax left on the hood?

In the pic, water was sprayed onto the hood which will cause it to bead up on a well waxed car. In the video, I let the water run freely out of the hose ( which is how you should always do your final rinse ) as it will sheet off the well waxed car and you will have less to get with your drying towel which will in turn cause less marring.
