I get a weird behavior when my G3 reaches full battery while wirelessly charging. The phone and charger connect and disconnects about every 3 seconds.
For comparison Using the same charger with my nexus 5 my phone would stay connected even at full capacity (I'm sure it has a internal safeguard for overcharging rather than disconnecting continuously)
I'm using one of those aftermarket qi wireless charging stickers.
(edit) I ended up buying a OEM LG battery door with qi built in. I get the same result. It's the phone.

Anyone else experience this or have a solution?

I have not. I bought an unbranded LG back plate and am using an old nexus 4 orb without any issues. I do not get the "battery 100%" notification, but on the lock screen is says battery fully charged every time I check it, all without any sounds during this time.

My concern is for the health of my phone's battery.

Just get insomnia. Then your phone won't stay fully charged that much. LoL I get a new phone a lot so I doubt the batttery will be a issue for me.

I have this issue with the factory USB charger, as do many others. I think it's just something they're going to have to patch out of the software.

I called LG support. They gave me the usual run around. Not to be racists but it was a Indian call center. I could tell that they have never even held the phone on their hands before and they were just reading through the typical responses.
One guy said it was similar to bluetooth disconnecting and re-connecting. I told him please transfer me to someone who knows something about phones. Then I got a girl who said pull the battery out and put it back in. This is the best support I could get...

Is my problem a isolated issue? I don't get much feedback from G3 owners
