The Mayo has two tests, COR2G (to be discontinued 6/10) and VCOV2 (its successor).
The bikur cholim test was the OLD COR2G test (it will say this on the results)
for COR2G test:
Less than 1.01 is negative
between 1.01 and 1.20 is indecisive
more than 1.2 is positive

What I was told by the clinic I tested by. I also got a result of 3.80

The 3.80 essentially is nothing every human will come up with some, anything below 15.0 is presumed to not have any etc. But you can consult with your pcp or anyone else.

Per their website Mayo is using a test without even an EUA and claimed specifity of around 85%

my question is, did i have it and for whatever reason didn't produce antibodies? or is this minimal number something found in all humans naturally without any exposure to covid19 at all? or maybe i just didnt give enoughtime for the antibodies to grow

From my totally layman's and entirely non-medical understanding it means that you may or may not have had it. It is simply inconclusive. Basically the same status as if you hadn't taken the test.

Or maybe i just didnt give enoughtime for the antibodies to grow
If anything, studies seems to be showing that the further removed you are from the symptoms, the lower the likelihood of testing positive for antibodies.

Thatís 85% confidence in s negative result. What is the sensitivity (confidence in positive results)? Many newer tests approach 100%

Took Labcorp test last week and got positive results for antibodies (no real symptoms). They use DiaSorin test.
You donít get any numbers only positive or negative.

If true would go a long way in explaining why some people very exposed didn't catch corona and why some people get it only mildly and others very severely

ETA I now see this was mentioned in the good news thread but still relevant to some of the questions discussed here
