Default 2018 Q7 Oil consumption @ 4,400 miles

I recently received a warning for low oil and to add 1qt. I was worried about it when it happened on a Saturday and didn't drive until the following Monday when I took it into Audi Service. The guy at the service department acted like being a quart at 4K miles was not a big deal and to expect it with this Q7 oil change being every 10k.
I then asked if it's expected for this car to use 2 qts between the regular oil changes and he said "it's possible". Now I'm thinking that I haven't had to add oil to any new car that I've owned in the last 30 years. This is my first Audi and it doesn't seem right to me. I'm keeping a close eye on it now and will continue to monitor before it's first oil change come due. I would like to know anyone's thought on this as I have seen a few posts ( not many ) regarding oil consumption.

I had to add a quart at 6k. Yeah, I've never had to add oil between the annual oil changes before 100k miles, let alone a new car

I'm at approx 4,200 miles and my indicator shows the level is "ok" but the level is approx 3/4 full.. Going to pick up a quart to have on hand for when I need it.

I had to add a quart in between 10K oil changes (at 5K and 15K approx). Same for the BMW X5 we had prior to the Q7.
