"...they had started to refill the cells with new honey, which I extracted, and put in a top feeder for them."
You can feed them back their own honey any time you like. It doesnt sound like you plan on keeping the fall flow anyway.
Taking into consideration your location, I would think you would want to start getting your hives ready for winter by doing some supplemental feeding. This will also encourage some late brood rearing which will boost the winter population.
Any time you give back honey or supers you are taking a chance of spreading disease if there is any present.
Make sure if you give back the supers that you isolate them to the hive from which they came. The same with feeding back honey.
