Without doing calculations, that certainly sounds a lot slower equilibration to ambient than my Leaf. I wonder if Nissan added more insulation to smooth out the peaks. The way to test that would be to see if the rate of cooling when ambient temp is at least 10 degrees lower than the battery pack temp is equally slow.
It seems more likely that LEAFfan's car is reading temperatures low for some reason. It seems highly unlikely that a battery pack stored and operated in 100F+ ambient temperatures would stay well below that temperature.
The coolest my pack has been is around 71-72F - a few degrees above my garage temperature with ambient temperatures in the 70-80F range. Driving the car with the pack around ambient quickly rises pack temps up a few degrees.
Some of the highest 5TB readings I've seen:
