read through the documentation on that part as I said:

Also the perturb command shows how contacts are treated - search for that in help or google (PERTURB and ansys)


The sticking option valid for frictional contacts generates a frictional tangential contact stiffness at the interface thus the closed contact can not slide that much depending on the tangential contact stiffness.
