I have a similar issue. when I'm accelerating changing from 4th to 5th i can easy notice that my clutch slipps. The transmission behaves exactly like if it was manual and I'm changing the gear with slow clutch. Also if I drive in manual mode on 5th gear let's say and if a take off my food and after that when I step on the gaz pedal, the RPMs go up and down exactly if I was releasing the cluch slow. So it is really hard to convince the dealership that this is a good reason to take a look at my car. So I'm still fighting. Last time the technician just made a cirle in the quarter and didn't feel anything. After all my explonation that this happens on higher gear.

I'll try to make a video to share it with you guys. But I think that it is the sowtware anyway. Because even if it is the same for everybody, it is kind of learning soft and you never know how it changes with the time.
