I think we all got these values.  I'd attribute the difference either to
bit-depth dithering (as mentioned) but in this case probably more to the
file exporting.  I wouldn't expect a jpg image to carry your color
information across 100%.

Calibrating your display does not alter the color values on the screen,
just how those colors appear on your display.  Think of the display like a
TV signal and the calibration like turning the hue/brightness knobs on the
TV to adjust the picture you see on the screen.
