I had the same experience. Removed and wiped down the exterior trans and all the covers after checking for leaks. Smell went away over a month or so. No idea what was the cause.

Recheck the fluid level with fluid at proper temp, car running, etc. as you noted. Had a similar experience when I changed my fluid. Was about a quart low but topping-off cured the problem.
