2016 Kia Soul 2200 rpm racing when starting cold

I have begun to notice when I start my 2016 Kia Soul (23k miles) whenever it is cold (sitting a few hours or more) it idles at somewhat high 2200 rpms for about 4-5 seconds before going down to 1500-1700 rpm.

I had a recall software update done at dealer last week for catalytic converter and not sure if this racing 2200 rpm on cold starts was happening before or not. Pretty sure it was occurring before the recall update, but I believe it has gotten more noticeable since the update last week.

any others encountered similar racing rpm on cold starts?
