Who knows, I'd say it depends on how "aggressive" the charging circuit is in terms of maximizing energy storage vs lifetime. Li-ion batteries don't really like it when they're charged above 3.92V, but a common limit (for consumer electronics) is 4.2V, which is really significantly more energy. If the charge level of 4.2V is rated at 100% (as would likely be the case), then stopping below 3.92V would cost you about a third of that, leaving it around 65% charged max. Time spent at voltages above 3.92V slowly degrades the cathode (faster for higher voltages).

Leaving the battery plugged in, leaves the voltages above 3.92V for more time, maybe even all the time.

"Overcharging" in the sense of charging above 100% should be impossible thanks to the battery charging circuit, but long-term degradation happens significantly below 100%.
