blood flow to contracting muscle increases if contractions are about 40% of maximum

stronger contractions compress blood vessels and reduce flow

does this suggest that warmups should be done at 40% of the max?

Do you think Ronnie Coleman worried about this?

But to answer your question.... yes, somewhere around 40%.
