I saw an expert interview. They say in designing the newest version of an old airframe design, they used a larger engine to increase range and efficiency. But that tended to push the nose up in flight and risked a stall. So they designed software to compensate for this tendency.

Pilots apparently find it confusing or counter intuitive. So investigation wants to learn if its a software flaw, or a problem with sensors sending bad data, etc.
