I don't use BeerSmith, I just use my hydrometer. Perhaps I had a larger volume, it has been nearly two years. I forget things. Or perhaps it's a typo.
Either way, I wouldn't be too terribly worried about the OG of a lambic. You're not doing IBU calcs. And it's extract, not all grain, so you won't need to figure out the volume/sugar calcs.
