OH! This may explain my experience the other day. Driving across town (after the engine was warm) I thought it was weird that the ESS was not turning off the engine when stopped at traffic lights. Maybe it was because of a regeneration. It finally turned off the engine when I stopped in the...
If you have electric power, I recommend attaching a battery charger/tender. I am not sure how it all works when cold, but the system may be using the battery to do things like keeping the DEF line from freezing. (DEF freezes below 12F.)
From my experience, regen's normally occur about every 200 to 300 miles and there is nothing that indicates it is happening unless you have a special monitoring device. Rarely, due to prolonged idling or such, messages about a regen will be displayed.

I am taking my vehicle in today for a P01D5 error (CYLINDER 6 INJECTION TIMING PERFORMANCE - OVER RETARDED). I was 630 miles from home so I am taking it to a dealer other than the one I normally use.

A six month and two week wait, 195 days: delivered to my home (shipped from the dealer). The DEF and fuel tanks were both full (thanks Nyle Maxwell Jeep). Odometer is 42 miles (hmmm it was 25 at the dealer).
The April 17, 2020 Order Guide has the diesel engine option on the 4-door. Perhaps you looked at the 2-door Order Guide.
EDIT: I looked closer. In the April Order Guide, the diesel is available on Sport and Sahara models, but the diesel engine is NOT available on the Rubicon!
The dealer is in Austin, TX. Back in October, it was reasonable to get the best deal possible ($6K less than local dealers) and have a road trip in January to pick it up.
Since the Southwest is not a hot spot for the virus, maybe I can go get the JL. I figure I come in close proximity to more...
I must have the best Jeep ever!
It has arrived at the dealer. That means Jeep took 179 days to build it and ship it - veeeeeery slooooowly and carefully to make sure everything was perfect. Thanks FCA!
And now, due to travel bans and our favorite virus, it will sit for a while. I am 915 miles away.
