Charging past limit?

Weird thing. I set my limit to 80% (SR) and it usually lands on 176. Just looked and it's at 181. Now I don't care about the mileage but what's weird is that it charged past the limit line. Anyone else experience this?

The approximate amount of energy in a battery is a little bit temperature dependent. So it may stop charging when it is at a certain level, and then as the temperature warms or cools a little bit, the car may adjust the "rated miles" estimate by a few miles because of the new temperature involved in the calculation of the energy.
