You should always balance charge/dicharge your packs. But the numbers you have are within reason, no need to worry.

You must balance charge them when there is a voltage difference of .05V or greater between cells.

Two cell example:
4.19 and 4.14 (must)
4.19 and 4.17 no big deal

You can use the "fast charge" setting in charger and as a routine, balance charge every fifth time.

Balance charging takes longer, specially as the cells ages.

4.19x
The third number is not a concern.

As stated, your voltage readings are great.

Given todays smart chargers, internal resistance reading is something to keep track of as well as using a lipo alarm.
