Ignore your actual reading, it means nothing. Reset all the screws as I mentioned and pick #3 as reference, balance the rest to it. As long as they all are evenly matched, you're good, button it up.
As far as "bottoming" the screws, lightly seat is the correct terminology. No harm in it unless you really crank them and damage the brass screw. Gen1/2 need some vacuum to operate, so no screw should end up being bottomed after the adjustment if you start out with the reference at least 3/4 turn out.
Gen3 is a different animal, throttle by wire.
