Unhappy i-94 validity after H1B extension

My i-797a was expiring on 4/23/2017. My employer duly filed my extension in December 2016 based on i-140 approval and I got a new i-797a that is valid from 4/24/2017 - 4/23/2020. This new i-797 had a i-94 attached to it which expires on 4/23/2020.
In January when i travelled home, I got a new visa stamped till 4/24/2020 (there is no change of employer).
Upon my arrival I presented the office at the POE with the new i-797a which is valid till 4/23/2020, he stamped my passport with admit until date of May 2020.
After checking my other i-797a which was valid till 4/23/2017 he then cancelled the 2020 stamp and updated that to 05/03/2017 (old i-797a expiry + 10 days). My online i-94 was is showing 05/03/2017

My company attorneys tell me that based on "last action rule", the i-94 on my new i-797a should be my new i-94 once the online i-94 expired. I looked up online but there seems
Is i-94 on my i-797a valid or have i started to accrue illegal presence ? If I am indeed out of status, should I visit the CBP office and try I can this corrected ?
