I would not be surprised if you have greater than "normal" clearance in crank and/or rod bearings from that mileage and the oil pressure is actually low at idle speed for that reason
I'm not sure the Niro has an idle speed similar to always on ICE engines. My BT OBD app doesn't seem to be working anymore otherwise I would check the engine rpm. But it certainly sounds like a very high idle when warming up, or a somewhat lower idle if I have left the heat on at a stop light. But never a low idle like you might expect with a DCT (which should be similar to a manual transmission car).
