As pointed out by mjr above, if you were filtering (overtaking) at a junction, and not in a separate lane, the HC does say not to, which could be the justification for 20% shared liability.
I don't see a cycle lane or not as changing the HC advice not to overtake past junctions although it does mean the driver broke more HC rules, but I think 20% seems harsh because almost everyone ignores the junction overtaking advice in my experience so the driver really shouldn't be relying on it and I bet they were unaware of it.
If the OP was in a cycle lane, they weren't overtaking. One lane was going faster than the other.
