As above, if anything the battery is at fault and not the alternator. A 6 cell battery should never have >13V at rest.

Good to hear the battery is fine, thanks for the feedback! ;-)

As for the drain, it could be small short inside the fusebox, before the fuses. But I agree the readings you get are well within tolerance, so not really something to worry about. You could remove ALL the fuses and check again. If there is still a drain, it can only be a short.
As an aside, are you using a clamp meter or an inline one? A clamp can easily pick up other magnetic field so is less accurate at very low current levels. It is of course the easiest way and allows you to quickly determine which cable has current (fusebox or starter/alternator).
