Default Charging but light is green

The charging indicator is green, not orange, but the battery is at 90% and charging.That seems a bit odd...

Are you rooted and running a custom rom? Some roms do green from 90 and up, stock just does green when completed.

Yes and yes.
Do you have any idea why anyone would choose to do this?

Most of what you hear about how to "properly" charge a battery is completely wrong. Watch this video here to get enlightened: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrcbcm11830
