New pads - decreased brake pedal engagement?

Maybe I’m just going crazy and forgot what my car feels like when I haven’t had it for almost 5 days, but I had new (carbon fiber + ceramic) pads (rear) put in while the rear hubs were being replaced and I feel like my brake pedal goes down slightly further to engage the brakes... If anything, I’d expect the exact opposite - increased engagement.

I had bled the brakes twice (to be sure) in the past few months before they were changed and I’m game to bleed them again soon to see if that helps but I just think it’s a bit odd...


Is this a thing? Or am I crazy?
