I suspect that, when DVD makers quote capacities, they use the same trick than hard drive manufacturers, i.e.: they consider 1Gb = 1000 Mb, and 1Mb = 1000Kb., when everybody else considers 1Gb/Mb = 1024Mb/Kb. This allows them to make it sound like their product has more capacity than it really has. In other words: what you see is normal, thereโ€™s nothing wrong.
