Steam/vapor from hood scoop

I just picked up a 2019 Z06, drove to work this morning. It was under 50 degrees and humid, we had rain the other day and condensation on the car this morning.
As I approached the gate of the base, I drove over some rumble strips and then I was in a line of traffic waiting for my ID check. As I idled in traffic a light mist of steam started flowing out of the hood scoop. Engine temps were spot on, car has less then 150 miles on it.
I am assuming water droplets fell onto the radiator or broke free inside the radiator fan ducting and the radiator vaporized it to steam.
As soon as I got moving it was gone and I never saw it again.

Am I correct in my assessment, or am I heading to the dealer for a check??

I'd drive it and forget it. A dealer could never replicate what happened anyway

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit
