Exhaust valve not closed on cold start

Hey guys, i noticed that my exhaust flapper is open upon cold start in these cold temperatures and remains open.

I dont have the tee mod and the acutator is plugged in. During the past summer i unplugged it a few times but it always worked fine once plugged back in.

Just confused as i thought it stays closed untill warmed up.

Cant try unplugging it because its to damn cold and the conector is the biggest pain in the ass to unplug.

Anyone else with this issue currently? Maybe the moisture coming out the exhaust is causing the flap to freeze once the car is off.
