5000 RPM is when it shifts if you are WOT. The maximum safe RPM you can put into the transmission is around 5000. You don't want to have to much higher of RPM like that at a constant rate as you risk blowing up the transmission. Usually the direct drum would be the culprit.
But during a WOT the engine will be running at 3000 RPM then rev up to 5000 and then the transmission will shift then the rpm will drop a little below 3000 then climb up to 5000 and shift again then the rpm will drop again a little below 3 and depending on the gear will climb up to 5000 and do another shift or will slowly climb to it's cruise RPM. It also depends if you have a lockup torque converter and if you're in over drive. When you have a lockup converter the engine will usually run 200-300 RPM less.
