2013 Chevy Volt battery in some late 2012’s?

I have been looking all over the internet for this information.  My 2012 Chevy Volt is a late 2012 model numbering in the 20,000’s of production.

I have a hunch that GM put 16.5 Kwh batteries from the 2013 year in some of the late 2012 Volts.  I believe mine has the larger battery.  I consistently use 10.6 Kwh before it is empty.  A 2012 Volt should only be 10.3 Kwh.  I have seen 10.8 and as low as 10.5 Kwh on occasion.  It also takes a bit longer to charge, like a 2013 should be.
