Dry fill is a totally different story. And actually Mazda Workshop Manual stated the same as our Owner's Manual: 4.8 qts. for 2.5L with oil and oil filter changes.It is hard to say why the owner manual recommends 4.4 qts for oil change but the service manual requires around 5.3 qts for a dry engine. As you found out 5+ qts is full.
