Jerk/surge versus starting rpm of acceleration

OK, so maybe this is subjective, but...

It seems like the time rate of change of acceleration (jerk/surge) is greater when acceleration starts at a higher rpm.

This isn't just spool time for the turbo...enthalpy of the exhaust gas...blah blah blah.

What I have noticed is that if I start accelerating at, say, 1500 rpm, the rate of acceleration is lower at 5000 rpm than it is if I start accelerating at 3000 rpm.

Is this an ECU thing? Not clear how it can be measured or if I'm just hallucinating, but I did a bunch of runs and it sure seems like you catch the car napping...

what I'm getting at is how power delivery varies AT THE SAME RPM depending upon the initial WOT rpm.
