According to climate control codes my S8 never runs hotter than 80 C. Stuck thermostat?

I'm still new to Audi world so I'd appreciate the advice from the gear heads here.
40 F ambient temp, city driving, some open highway and some idling in traffic. Temp is mainly around "normal" mark but according to "unlock" mode it's never over 80 C, mainly 75 C to 80 C.
I'm aware that OEM thermostat is 82 C but isn't that too cold for engine to be able to burn all the contaminants due to cold start etc..?
In my experience with BMW's it seems that 92 C would be much better for overall engine health.
