Ultimately, any airline has the right to charge you for luggage that is oversized.

If you choose to check-in the trunk, do so knowing you are responsible for any oversize fees that the carrier has.

If they happen to not break out the measuring tape, then consider it an act of goodwill that they accepted the luggage and waived any fees you were technically liable for.
