Enough cell number or not based on library complexity evaluation by ATACseqQC?

I use ATACseqQC to estimate the library complexity of one ATAC-Seq data. When I don't trim any reads, it seems that our library complexity (cell number) is not enough because of a saturation plateau (fig. 1). However, it appears that the library complexity (cell number) is enough because of an unsaturation curve, if I trim chrM, duplicate, low mapping quality, and improper reads (fig. 2). I don't know which one is correct. Could you help me? May I know how ATACseqQC estimates the number of putative sequenced fragments and distinct fragments beyond the number of reads we sequenced (i.e., about 27 million reads)? Many thanks.
