The fork is close enough. It's hard to nail the sag on a suspension fork so the "corrected" forks are based on a best estimate of the neutral length. When you set this up measure the fork based on 40-50mm of spacers and make the cut. Then you can move the spacers above or below the stem until you dial in the final height (general guideline is no more than 40mm spacers below the stem).
Once you have your final stem height set, it up to you whether you want to trim the fork to final size, or leave the extra spacers above the stem keeping your options open.
