the fact that lipos take more than what they are rated after a full discharge to their respective cutoff voltages is nothing to worry about. So long as the packs aren't overdischarged (which they aren't with the mm cutoff set) it is NORMAL for packs to go past their rated capacity upon charging. I personally have 2 trackpiwer 4900's I race with and after practicing with them until cutoff I regularly see roughly 5100mah go back into them. An extreme example was a maxamps 6000 pack I had. I saw 6800 (!!!!) go into that thing more than 20 times. Your pack is perfectly fine. Charging to 5000mah is perfectly normal. Enjoy that gold brick!
