Because exported JPGs use compression technology, the size of the file can be compressed without (much noticeable) loss of quality. So if you are getting 3 to 5 megabytes, there is nothing wrong here, and the files are probably fine. You should look at the exported file with your own eyes and see if the quality is what you expect.
