Doesn't look like a bug to me. Applying full power you need to apply quite a bit a left rudder to keep her straight, as expected.

With increasing speed the rudder trim tab starts to take effect and pushes the rudder a bit to the left, which decreases the need to manually apply left rudder.

At higher speeds in the takeoff run you don't need to apply any rudder at all and if you accelerate further you need to apply right rudder.

Except for the intitial trim tab & prop wash caused rudder movement, I don't notice any movement on its own at all.

The only bug seems to be the adjustable trim tab in the menu that still has no effect.
