Correct. A few quarts of the wrong oil (even it were the cheapest swill) won't cause any issues if you're going to change it soon.

Just drive as normal and you'll be fine. I probably wouldn't volunteer the information to the dealer though.

Don't worry about a thing. I've had that same oil in my car before with no problems.
