Softube Trident A-Range EQ behaviour at 44.1: Bug?

I was trying to figure out the relative slope of various EQs (Softube Trident, Stillwell 1973, Maag) by using the Match EQ function in Logic 9. I was trying to figure out if what I was hearing was being reflected in the graph. And then I found this:



Notice the slight dip near the Nyquist frequency: it's reflected on the Multimeter as well as the Match EQ plugin. So I checked other plugins.



The Stillwell, Maag and Motu plugins don't do this at 44.1k.



Interestingly I tried the Softube Trident plugin at 96k, and it doesn't show this same behaviour. I doubled checked with the Voxnego Span plugin, and it shows the same thing.

Anyone seen this before?

PS: I probably can't hear this, but y'know, when you translate it into an eq setting, it's like a LP filter.

BTW

Oh yeah, it's white noise generated from Audacity that I'm playing through the plugin.
