A340-600 Wing Roll On Liftoff

I have noted significant wing roll on climbout in two recent A340-600 takeoffs. One was a liftoff after an aborted landing on a very wind day and one was a normal takeoff on a relatively windless day.

It made me wonder if the -600 is somehow prone to significant wing roll and correction at low speed. Any thoughts?

In my experience flying them, no. Both of those videos look like windy days, the VS was attributed to low level windshear.

The VS example occurred on a very windy day but the LH example occurred on a pretty calm day, wind-wise.
