Oil Overfill Symptoms

I just got back from an oil change and my electronic reader is all the way up, and the dipstick appears to have oil to the top of the red plastic. The car was built in 1/99, so I don't think it was ever calibrated for the latest Porsche TSB in 2/99 that recommended more oil.

I am not getting any smoke on startup, which seems to be a symptom of overfilling. I am not sure if it is overfilled or by how much. Should I be concerned, or does the lack of smoke mean I don't need to worry?
