Volt meters come in many types depending upon the useage. High impedance input meters like VTVM, DMM and some FETVM are more accurate at reading voltages than say a cheap meter like a battery tester as an example. Low impedance input meters will read lower on the scale because they load down the source voltage. Your readings are within the tolerance of the given said voltages so dont be concerned about the differances.
