Default Automatic Transmission Question

I Have a 2016 SRX that just turned 50,000 miles. I was able to suck out 61 ounces of old transmission fluid and replaced with almost the same amount of Dexron VI. Then I drove it to warm it up and check the level. With all my older vehicles the dipstick read low when cold and higher when hot. My problem now is it does just the opposite. It reads at the very maximum level when cold and looks to need more added when it is checked hot. I am thinking I need to get it to proper level after the fluid is hot and disregard the high level cold reading. That being said I have been wrong before so I need to be sure. Can someone enlighten me on whats going on ?
