My system is like this as well.

Possibly this bug? https://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/20187.html
In the absence of a uefi menu entry named "Window Boot Manager" (or possible Red Hat Enterprise Linux) your system maybe is ignoring the first boot priority and skipping to the second one. I suggest trying to make a boot entry item for refind with the label as "Microsoft Boot Manager like this

efibootmgr -c -d /dev/sda -p 2 -w -L "Microsoft Boot Manager" -l '\EFI\refind\refind_x64.efi

The only issue with this is that when you invoke the uefi firmwares boot menu, you will see the Microsoft "Boot Manager" as an option

That makes no difference. Which goes to show, I suppose, that while many (all?) Lenovo uefis are buggy, they are not all buggy in the same way.

Having refind first in the boot order doesn't make any difference either though Rod describes some uefis that can be tricked like this. Basically you have a shut-down script that invokes efibootmgr to put refind first for the next boot. In my case, that doesn't work, but I could easily adapt Rod's trick by having a shutdown script that always makes refind the next one-off boot.
