I have not noticed that. My most recent experiences on very soft rubber were from e*thirteen on the MOPO versions and I didn't have any problems. In fact they felt great. I didn't stick my fingernail in to check, however.  Are you saying that according to Maxxis, the MaxxGripp is inferior to harder compounds when it gets cold? Clearly auto tire makers get around this because one of the most important differences between summer and winter tires is the soft rubber that continues to conform to the road in cold temperatures.  I began to do some internet sleuthing on this and rabbit holes abound. I haven't found anything specific to bike tires yet.
