I've never experienced a subtle auto-iris.
you could try displaying a solid black screen and turn the auto iris on/off and see if anything changes.
with my old Epson, I noticed it most when flipping between webpages. going from a 'standard' bright white webpage to a very dark, nearly all black webpage and back again. there was also a slight delay, if I remember correctly going to the white one looked very washed out for half a second until the iris opened.
