The RPM of the engine has almost no relation to the speed of the car. The computer sets the engine RPM for maximum efficiency of the engine. At 60 mph almost all of the propulsion comes from the electric motor. If the HVB battery charge dropped to its minimum allowed low point the engine would speed up to provide more power for the electric motor and more direct drive from the engine.
Your throttle pedal is not connected to the engine. It is two potentiometers that are connected to the computer. It tells the computer what you want. The computer decides how much comes from the engine and how much comes from the electric motor.
Your observation is normal operation of the system.
