Maybe someone can figure this out for you. The only thing I would say of any relevance is that when first starting up, i.e. on the petrols, the engine revs to around 1500 rpm and then doesn't like you to drive off until the engine revs have dropped to tick over, 750rpm. Then it's happy for you to take over.
They default start off in 2nd gear, so more gas (revs) is needed to get them moving initially. Try manually selecting first gear with the paddles or with the gear shift lever knocked over to the left in sport mode before pulling away and see if it is still the same?
The 9-speed auto was designed initially for Evoque and Discovery Sport to have a super-low first gear for off-roading, as a substitute for a low-range transfer box. It's the same box in the E-PACE. It'll start in second by default in normal drive modes.
You may find the car holds gears a bit longer than you might choose to when it's cold: this is normal.
