Not necessarily, it judges what's needed in its findings and adjusts for balance. You can probably manually reset it to your own taste. The number is often reasonably close, but most people fine tune.

Check what it calculated the speaker distances to. A difference in levels like that may indicate the surrounds are no equidistant.

I'm with you -10 and -5 is a big difference. How was the mic placed? Where you using a mic/camera stand or did you lay it flat on the top of your chair?

How far apart are you speakers?

Do you have a "Reference Disc" that you can pop in and check out the surround effects? ... a movie scene or a song on a Blu-Ray that you know very well. Play it and listen.
