EX1R Color Bar Multi/75% and Zebra question

I have my zebras on most of the time and today i was setting up my smallHD DP1X monitor and when i put the color bars while the zebra was turned on the whites and yellow on the bottom portion of the multi were covered in zebra stripes and when put in 75% the white was covered in zebra stripes. When not in color bar mode obviously i adjust the iris and ND filters so that almost nothing is overexposed in picture.

My question is, is this normal? Am I being silly and missing something completely obvious, if so could someone lend a helping hand and help me figure this out?

Thank you in advance.

It is normal for the white and yellows to show zebra on color bars. They are bright.

If zebra is at 75% it does not mean anything striped is over exposed, it just means it is 75% and that is right.

You can set the zebra to 100 and then those areas are flirting with or are over exposed. The EX cams will record all the way to 130. And the second zebra is set to 100, I don't think you can change this.
