I honestly think you did the right thing. If you aren't allowed to correct
errors of spelling, grammar, and punctuation, or if your higher-ups don't
recognize when you have done so, you punt to the boss.

I guess I would be a little concerned that your boss did not back you up but
"silently" published the errors instead. But that sounds like a bit of
office politics that you were obviously aware of when you sent the material
on to that supervisor.

If you did anymore, you would be labeled a hot head. (I ought to know; I
have been so labeled in the past.)
