I'd set up another camera pointed at the left front wheel, if you're coming to Auto Club Speedway on May 3rd, to see if it's intervening when it's lifting. Set the camera nice and low, on the sideskirt low enough to capture the wheel's hop and see if it brakes when the tire lifts off the ground.
I am not sure front wheel lift is what is causing MDM intervention. Watching the video, most of the time it is the front/outside wheel that is being braked. This is consistent with a stability system wanting to correct/prevent and oversteer condition. IMO, a front tire slip would be corrected with a rear/inside wheel brake application.
