Not sure where I'd submit a bug report, has anyone else experienced the following?
I have my charging thresholds set to 80% in Lenovo Companion for my T470. However, it seem like half the time it will end up charging one or both batteries to 100%. What seems to happen is it charges to 80%, and it might sit there for a little while, and then a battery creeps to 81%, at which point it then gets charged to 100%. I'm assuming the code behind the threshold portion of the program is saying if charge == threshold rather than if charge >= threshold to determine when to cut the charging off.

I am having the same problem.
Previously, I had no problems when I was using the Lenovo Settings app to manage battery thresholds. I think that there may have been some issues in porting over the battery threshold functionality from Lenovo Settings to the Lenovo Companion.

Same thing happening here. Everything worked fine with Lenovo Settings (on my T460p). Then I uninstalled that and installed Lenovo Companion. At first the battery charged to 2% past threshold then stopped. Next day it blew past the threshold and went up to 100%. So I uninstalled both Companion and the Power Management driver, reinstalled both, and still the threshold is being ignored.

Anyone know wher I can get old versions of the Power Management Driver?! Alternatively I might just go back to Lenovo Settings.
Hey Lenovo, your silence on whether this is a bug in Lenovo Companion is deafening!

Same problem here (Thinkpad P51). I have my charging threshold at 80%, but yesterday it charged to 100%. I had no problems with Lenovo Settings.
Lenovo, please update your Apps.
