Avid S3 with Nuendo 8

I saw a post on the N7 forum from some folks indicating showstopper issues with the fader automation implementation on Avid S3.

Can somebody verify if Nuendo 8 / Cubase 9.5 works as expected with S3? Previous folks mentioned that just by touching a fader that is currently at 0db it will cause it to write a 0.3db or 0.7db value back. Is this still true today?
