Now , for your homework ............. . .
If there was no overvoltage the regulator contacts would never operate, they reduce the voltage to a preset threshold.

Now we are arguing over semantics . The regulator will work when the voltage reaches a set limit . whether you want to call this an overvoltage is up to you . Qn a 12v setup the CVC is set at about 14 and a bit volts , so as to charge the 12v battery .

My safety valves lift at a set pressure in the same way , but I don't call it an overpressure , unless they are set wrong .
