Custom WB Issue Sony a7 III (for video)

So I use the custom WB along with an X-Rite Colorchecker and my skin tones are very magenta. At first, I thought it was the LUT I was using, but I went ahead and checked the RGB parade and vectorscope on my Shogun Inferno and the colors are indeed magenta/red, in fact the red channel is clipping or nearly so. On the other hand, in FCP X, the scopes don't look nearly as terrible. For lighting, I am using a Lishuai C-1500 RSV, a rather large LED light with a decent CRI rating of around 93, though we know that doesn't mean it doesn't have a magenta peak. Not really sure! Anyhow, what's unusual is that even though I have the LED set to daylight (5600K), my Sony continually registers 5000K when doing a WB. I'm attaching photos showing the settings on the LED, the X-Rite WB target and the back of the camera, along with screen grabs from the NLE. Is it just my natural skin tones? LOL Any help would be appreciated!
