Am I outputting more power than WSPR says I am ?

I am using a Flex 5000 and have the Drive Power set at 3 watts ( Fwd Pwr ) WSPR 2.0 is currently set at 30 dBm ( 1 watt )
however when I XMIT the power reading shows 3 watts not 1 watt. I assume ( ? ) that the WSPR software incorporates the 30 dBm
setting into the data stream which is then logged as such by the receiving station.

My external power meter shows approximately 3 watts, so the receiving station thinks I am using 1 watt when in fact I am using 3 watts.
Am I correct in thinking that the WSPR software does not control the rig's power output ?
