I have two 5065A's with the battery back-up feature (that I have removed the fuse from to, hopefully, preserve longevity of the battery pack), one 'white face' without the clock and one 'black face' with the LED clock. I'll be happy to open one (or both) and inspect the battery pack if needed.
I have rebuilt the battery packs for both and, IIRC, there are 20 cells. I can't say that there aren't 21 but it's been a long time.
Let me know if you would like me to open the pack and take some pictures. Happy to do so if you would like.

I don’t in any way doubt your count. If indeed they are putting 21 cells into that circuit, the NiCads likely don’t last as long as they might with a different charging circuit ….
