Major Hesitation After Auto Engine Restart

Good Morning.

My 2012 6 Cyl Tdi Diesel Toureg with 140000km has an odd issue that has appeared over the last 6 months.
Intermittently when the engine re-starts after the stop start System is engaged at lights or in heavy traffic the engine restarts, then has a Major hesitation of a second or so, then accelerates normally.
It is intermittent and inconsistent.

95% of teh time the car is normal

There are no Faultr codes stored in the car, dealer can't find anything and has not heard of this before.

I have tried to reset the Engine ECU by Ignition off, full throttle, ignition on for 15 seconds then ignition off.

Any suggestions?

Just turn the stupid stop/fart off.

You can do that permanently with VCDS.

Hmm, interesting... Getting the same issue. Intermittent, annoying, no apparent pattern.

Feels as if trying to accelerate too soon after the restart, under certain conditions.

is it by design, or a sensor issue? but, no fault codes.
