If you're seeing fuel cutoff, there's no doubt that you're over 1 bar - prolly closer to 1.2 bar at cutoff. Sounds like boost creep since you're hitting the cutoff in higher gears. Overboost happens in 1st/2nd (maybe 2nd) where fast reving motor/turbo produce boost faster than the wastegate can react. Generally, 1st/2nd gear and high rpms is where I've seen the cutoff kick in.
