Tamron 24-70 G2: Should VC snap to focus?

I have a Nikon D750 camera and have been using a Tamron 70-200 G2 lens, and recently got a Tamron 24-70 G2 24-70 lens.

One difference I have noticed is in the vibration control: in the 70-200, the focus would "snap to focus" when VC kicked in, and hold the image still in the viewfinder. With the 24-70, I don't notice this "snap to focus", nor does the image feel  locked in the viewfinder.

I tried some test shots with VC off and with VC on, and on average I get better focus with the 24-70 when the VC is on. But I'm wondering if the operation should be the same as for the 70-200, and perhaps if I could  be getting sharper shots.

So I'm wondering if this behaviour is the same for anyone else with the lens, and with the Nikon D750 in particular.
