I've seen this behavior as well although I thought it always came when
hw.z == 0 so was masked. I guess its not to surprising its sneaking
threw with low pressures.

This might read better if we change to "if (num_fingers) {" and then
we do not need to repeat the hw work around logic twice.
Also, this snippet shows I may be seeing it as well but the
BTN_TOUCH=0 when < 25 is probably masking it for most cases.

Either way:
