When I'm watching 1.85:1 anamorphic dvds on my Mits 55613, there are no black bars to speak of. I've cycled through all the display modes, but couldn't find any that didn't zoom. Is this just the way Mits sets handle 1.85:1 because it's close to 1.78:1?

It is usually not practical and often impossible to eliminate overscan without introducing underscan on CRT based TV sets.

Often the picture enlarges slightly if the overall content is quite light, or shrinks slightly if the house current voltage drops. If you adjust the picture to have no overscan, this growing and shrinking will become conspicuous.

Also the edges of the video frame may have ragged edges or annoying flashes.
