No, it doesn't mean that.  I was just saying that for me Emacs behaves
as advertised: scrolls by 5 lines each click of the wheel.  I didn't
express any opinion for or against changing the default scroll size.
Please note that the OP explicitly said the defaults scroll much more
than they should on their machine.
