Anyone else's car sometimes turn on headlights and wipers on startup?

Hey all, I am on 2018.21.9 but my car has exhibited this behavior sporadically for the few months that I have had it. About every 20th startup or so, in broad daylight, the car will turn on headlights and have a single swipe of the windshield wiper. The headlights go off after a minute or less. Tis very odd and tends to smear the windshield which is far from the end of the world but still annoying to have happen seemingly at random in broad daylight. Anyone else experience this?

Edit: and for the record my car is an AP1 car
