How much extra oil did you add?

You will also sleep better
Marginally overfull should not cause any harm, if it's full to the brim it *could* cause accelerated wear on the scavenge pump.

maybe you could drain out all the oil again
and get the correct amount of oil in a measuring cylinder before pouring back again.

I think its more a point of residual oil laving in the engine, gearbox and oil lines etc that when you add the correct amount of oil it reads overfull.
If you were to strip an engine and reassemble it after cleaning then the oil level will be spot on with the recommended oil quantity.
