Everyone's efficiency is different - yours might be higher than what they use in their calculations...
Size of your batch might have ended up.under 5 g, or maybe they assumed a 5.25 g batch size.
In the end, you learn to predict your recipes based on your equipment - recipes from other people just give you a good estimate.
