rear axle oil capacity

so i finally got to changing oil in my rear axle. it was pretty darn dirty after almost 27k. and cleaning old silicone with the bar and spare tire there was no fun either. anyway, after i poured 2 bottles in the level was still not at the filler hole but like 3-5 mm lower. it was late and all stores were closed so i plugged the hole and drove home. is it ok to have the level lower then the hole or should i fill it up?

You dont want to over fill it as when in use it heats up and expands. If i recall it should be about 2 bottles. Usually i measure what came out and put the same amount back in
