Re: is my battery defective?
Well, to directly respond to answer the question you asked, YES, I think you are paranoid and looking too closely! You are trying to make a rather important decision (send it back?) based on only a couple of data points.

Leave it in sleep mode; also, power it down a few times. Keep notes of how your tablet is performing from charge to charge.
In the meantime, read through the numerous posts on this and other forums that have to do with Nexus 10 battery life, charge times, etc. Also, do some research into the apps that are out there that do not shut down properly and continue to consume electricity even when the tablet is in sleep mode; if you have such apps, either kill them when done or uninstall them. Compare the experiences of others to what you are observing over time and under a diverse set of conditions with your tablet. That way, you will end up with a much more accurate assessment of whether your battery is consistently performing significantly worse than everyone else's battery. If it is, THEN send it back.
Hope this helps
