Hi, new drone user here (just got a Mavic Air as my first drone), day 2, still figuring things out. Kinda paranoid about the rules of flight, don't want to be breaking the law, or my new drone! So I've been very cautious with my first flights, staying waaaay under the 120m (400ft) ceiling. So I'm kinda puzzled about the stats the DJI Go 4 app is reporting; it has a top distance of 856m (which I presume is flight path distance, not distance away, as I've not flown more than about 300m out), top speed of 40.kph....yeah I did give sport mode a quick go.
The values for distance and speed look reasonable, but it has my top altitude as 394.1m!!! No! I absolutely did not fly that high!
If I open the flight data tab, it lists all my flights, and from that the highest I went was 49m.  So is the 394.1m height above sea level? I thought all altitude measurements were zero'd at the point of origin of each flight.  Here's two scrshots of my app info:

Definatly above sea level.  Mine shows 13,155 feet max altitude (4,009 Meters)  Until you look at it closer and see that my take off altitude was 12,990 feet (3,959 Meters)
