Yes, completely normal to get a small puff that lasts for a second or so.

If you get the 007 smoke screen for 10 seconds, your AOS wasn't replaced correctly.

After sitting one day, no.... At least mine does not do that, unless it sits more than a few days and even then it is not cloud, just small puff.
