I’m not sure what the cause of that is. I have a couple that will fail to update state also. I tend to believe this is a mesh network issue. Meaning the network isn’t sufficiently robust enough to relay the state info back. But I may just be looking for the most simplistic answer.
I haven’t worried about this too much as it doesn’t stop any of the routines from doing their job. A routine to turn on lights will still send an on command to a light or switch that the app says is already on. It bugs me though that the light can be turned on and off by routines but not properly report it’s state. I share your frustration.
That’s weird, I was going to ask the opposite. Last night it seems device updates to hub from manually switching ge dimmer on and off seemed much faster than normal. Almost instant. Normally there is some delay.
Did so once yesterday and again now. No automatic status update being reported from these three devices. Also power cycled each device with no change. I can imagine people at SmartThings pulling their hair out when conditions and problems seem to be different depending on the individual and not the equipment. Geeezzzz!

Run a zwave repair. There may be an issue in the mesh
That’s exactly what mine do, sometimes, not always. Most commonly I will have one z-wave and one zigbee device that will fail to update from off to on or vice versa. All my Zigbee devices are Cree bulbs. The Z-wave device would be one of 2 zwave dimmer plugs.
Sometimes if I refresh them several times the state will change to the correct one sometimes not.
