Uh, yeah they do. And my first and current Honda pilot both did/do this.
I'm not saying there isn't any variance but bottom line the trans isn't going to shift at its best until the fluid is up to normal operating temps. And I'm not sure what your temps are like where you live, but when I am referring to cold temps I'm talking under 20 degrees when my car is sitting outside overnight.
