There are a few conditions when the engine is assembled that can affect the torque retention. Simple stuff like the cylinder mounting flange not being clean, not being flat, too many base shims, stuff like that.

Same thing for the heads where the flat washers and barrel nuts for the head go.

I would just re-torque it and keep an eye on it, like you have been. Usually these things eventually stabilize.
