DCT overfilled?

Engine completely cold.

So I changed the dct filter (driver's side beside the oil lines) and a small bit of fluid came out...maybe 1/5 of a liter. Got that all put back together. I then backed out the fill hole and fluid started gushing out, I quickly ran the plug back in. Does that mean it was seriously overfilled?

will an overfill cause over temps since the fluid can't properly cool off???

I got everything patched up, did some runs and hard accelerations and pushed thru all the gears just fine. DCT transmission temp around 93°C...
