Default Body Fat Level and Performance

I did some searching and couldn't find any discussion related to this topic so was hoping someone might have the info. I believe I recall reading in the past that there is an approximate body fat range in which the body functions most optimally - something like 10-18% for males I believe. Is this correct and, if so, in what capacity? Does anyone have more information / resources that explore this phenomenon?
