Could be wet stacking.
At a regular idle (non-elevated) the cylinders cool down and you get an incomplete burn.
Diesel will get into the exhaust system, including the turbos.
Once you get into it again the diesel will start to burn in the exhaust.
Hard on the turbos.
If you're going to idle that long, idle it up using the high idle mod (if you haven't done it already do a search in the tech forum).
Or I could be full of $hit.
