No this isn't a trait of Codes. If anything, there is something going on. The Code lineup from SRAM has been pretty reliable over the years, a favorite brake for a lot of people.
I have relatively new pads. I put them on with the last bleed. Brakes have about 20hrs/178 miles since last service. Looking at that chart it seems that SRAM brakes don't forward the pistons as well as Shimano to compensate for the wearing pads. I may have to manually forward the pistons.In my experience, SRAM Code & Guide brakes don't get on with worn pads.
