A6100: very slow shutter speed in Program / Auto modes with Auto ISO

I purchased a couple of A6100 to replace my A6000 and A6300. 250 cheaper than the A6400 made it seem worth saving. I just noticed that in Auto ISO, the A6100 picks really slow shutter speeds in dark situations. It keeps the ISO low. I am aware that it does not have a minimum shutter speed setting with Auto ISO, but I compared it with the A6000 and there is a huge difference. If not having a minimum shutter speed option, it would be great to have 2 settings for auto modes bias. If I use P or A it is usually in situations where there are action and inconsistent lighting. It feels almost like a dealbreaker. With the A6000 the camera seems to pick 1/125 ss in general, while the A6100 picks 1/30 ss. I may be shooting with a wide-angle lens but in a room full of people that is insufficient. Any way to bring up the issue with Sony?
