The perception of color temperature is highly dependent upon relativity to other light. 5000K is not blue at all but appears so next to lower K light.

Also, the camera had to make a choice as to which light was considered "white" in the side by side picture. It obviously WB'd to the 5000K. A better comparison can be made by taking a picture of real objects, not a wall, and compare color reflectance.

Yes, it's a pretty unscientific demonstration of the differences. This is close to how it looks in real life though, at least to my eyes.

The wall itself is not white either.
