Unless you have documentation that it started under warranty (such as a invoice that the car was at the dealer for this issue, the issue was just not fixed) there is nothing they can do short of a goodwill repair. In this case, they are just trying to be nice.

If they honored warranty based on claims that an issue started before you crossed 50k miles or 4 years, they'd incur quite a bit of cost they'd have to push on to you in the sale price of the vehicle, as everyone near warranty mileage would put that claim on the table.

By the way, you actually do not have an extended warranty then it sounds, just an extended maintenance plan. They are two different things and as you found out, covered two different set of service. Once is for maintenance required as the CBS computer indicates; the other covers certain repairs.
