I'm going to disconnect the PC to see whether that makes a difference and then planning to make another trip back to the dealership, can't really say if it's gotten worse, but I'm definitely noticing it which in my mind is not good.
So I wanted to follow up. I took my 2010 Trail to the dealer. They confirmed the shudder between 30-45 (and 40-50 as well) as the torque converter.

He was a straight shooter, said that they don't do trans flushes there, but they do at another Toyota Dealer.

I took it to that Dealer, did the full flush (important: not just a fluid exchange or change), and 2 days later I have no shudder. It was happening multiple times a day prior to that.

I will come back and let you know if it resurfaces -- but I knew how to reproduce it before, and couldn't do it for the last two days. Very hopeful, and might be worth the $300 gamble for you guys.
