Car sat idle at the dealer for 6+ months. Cause for concern?

This is the part of my new car buying experience where I start OCDing over the little please bear with me. ;-)

I purchased my 2017 LT in Charlotte, NC a few weeks ago and according to the window sticker the car was initially delivered to a dealer up in Mystic, CT. The door jam sticker says it was manufactured in Aug. 2017 so I'm assuming it sat idle at the CT lot over the winter. Not sure why there was a dealer trade from NC to CT but I guess it's normal.

Assuming the battery was charged from time to time, would there be any concern with a Bolt sitting that long over the winter in that climate?

I'd be more concerned about the aux battery, than the traction pack.
Yes! The 12 volt lead acid battery is the one that is giving some people nightmares. Thankfully, it's a cheap fix.
