DCT 1-2 gear shift point?

SE w/ Sport Package. 3,100 miles.

Anyone else with the DCT and sport package notice the transmission will sometimes shift at ~7,200 rpms instead of ~6,500 rpms?

Build date was late September, and TSB doesn't apply.

Just curious if anyone else has had this happening, not concerned just yet.

Shift point depends on how hard you push the gas.

Whoops. Yes, sport mode. Shifts much more often at ~6.5K then ~7.2K.

I know it'll shift much later, but says nothing about sometimes shifting pasting 7K rpms.
