Too much oil is just as bad as too little oil, Benz would not have given the car a capability to report this if they felt it to be unimportant. The service writer is obviously not a tech and his advice is wrong.
You must use the dipstick again and check the level.
If you cant see the level on the dipstic, I need my glasses on for this so I know how difficult it is to see with fresh oil, then the answer is to dry the dipstic well and dip the engine, then gently place a piece of toilet paper on the dipstick, compare the wet area on the paper against the dipstick level markers OK.
