D850 + optimal metering for timelapse work in A mode?! (smoothing doesnt do much)

First things first.  Exposure smoothing doesnt appear to do very much for me when using the built in Nikon timelapse tool.  I have been recording timelapses both manually and in Aperture priority mode with exposure smoothing on and my RAW files are all over the place.

I have some SYRP gear as well for my timelapses where I want to try some longer shots using A mode, and I have been struggling with sunsets where my exposures are changing a lot.

Any tips for the "least" variance when shooting in A mode?!  I want to keep the shutter from jumping around as much as possible.

Other then that, been loving my D850 as it's a lot of fun shooting timelapse material knowing I am not burning out the shutter
