From the latest sieve file for 3M-4M I get a slightly different number: only 53812 exponents.
And (just for comparison) for the range 5M-6M there are 53731 exponents.

As VBCurtis already mentioned: The difference is quite small and is just the typical fluctuation in the distribution of surviving exponents after sieving.
