How was your correct value determined?

Why not adjust by 10dB?

Speculating: in a typical card, RSSI is calculated by firmware from
readings of ADCs attached to the receiver.  Firmware may average
several readings.  Firmware may apply other offsets or calibrations,
based on frequency and temperature.  This sounds like a firmware
problem.
