Two things, digitization is not done linearly. But more importnatly, I think the camera with 77000 electron capacity could have more dynamic range than 16.23EV, for example in case when the last few electrons filling in the well needed more light per electron than the previous ones. I would be surprised if it was a linear relationship, but I am not able to find the relationship between the photon flux and the well filling at a fixed exposure.
