I don't know that there is any data showing the TBolt adjusting for aging
during holdover. In other words: showing the holdover DAC voltage changing
at a completely constant temperature.

Yes, correct.  But I was talking about during hold-over.   t-bolt in
holdover is no longer a GPSDO.    It falls back on using a temperature and
aging model.
