This is in 3.51

I have 530 lbs of items which I'm trying to move by raft, but it gives the message "Your raft is overloaded and won't move until you ease the load."

I have some tree trunks nearby, weighing 3.000 lbs, which the raft will move without any problem.

My items are mostly small things (74 stacks) so maybe the raft has a limit on number of items? Is that expected, or should be reported as a bug?

My guess is you are right, I remember a similar message in the past if you over loaded beasts. Not by weight but by number of different items (count).

Looks like 39 stacks is the most the raft will carry

Yes, there a limit to the number of stacks for animals/companions, crafts, and the PC. The PC limit is higher than the others, though, so I load up my cow of burden with the heavies stacks, while having my character take the many light ones (and I employ the same method with the dog after killing a Njerp).

Is the limit the same for everything besides PC, or might the punt have an higher limit?

If anything it would be a lower limit, considering it has a lower weight limit.

 If I recall correctly, a punt can carry more.

Raft carries more.  Punt is lighter.

You are correct;
"3.17 stable version
- added: watercraft capacity restrictions

You can transport either 40 different item stacks or 200 times the
weight of your watercraft. If your punt/raft is overloaded you
can't row it and notification about it will be displayed.
(Weight restriction is far from realistic, but we need to allow
transporting logs with watercrafts until floating timber is
implemented."
