When you conceder that the majority of the attempts are automated bots so moving port would reduce the amount of scans.   The scans that do happen after that you can at least assume they are spending more time on your server.

I moved mine and the failed attempts dropped entirely.

High end audio was in the Venetian for at least 2 years and that meant people had open rooms with the furnature moved to show off speakers and gear.  That practice has been going on for decades in hotels and I can't imagine why they would suddenly kick people out unless it was an individual stupidity.

Always try to do things in chronological order; it's less confusing that way.
