Regen on Demand Paddle not working at beginning of drive (2017 G2 Premier)

I noticed recently that my regen on demand paddle does not seem to be working at the beginning of my drive below freezing (20's) for maybe five to ten minutes.

When I press the paddle (D or L) foot not on the go pedal, I hear something rev up, no idea if engine or a hydraulic pump. I think the engine has been on each time this happened. Later, it works normally.

2017 G2 Premier 1 and 2 pkgs, ACC

Anyone else experience this?

The only thing I can think of, is if your battery has been charged to its max. At that point it cannot accept any more charge, so regen is disabled.

But when you just do a full charge, there is normally a small buffer built in that still allows some extra charge coming from regen.
That said, I heard about some people overcharging using the pre conditioning of the car while plugged in.
I have also seen that when leaving the home from the top of a hill, as I go down, regen adds to an already full battery, and at one point regen stops working.
