LT8364 Simulation Demo Circuit

Hi,

a question regarding the LT8364 Simulation Demo Circuit (and all derivates I have tried so far):

When placing a current probe (LTSpice) on the LT8364 SW pin the simulation shows very high current peaks (up to 18A) for a brief period of time (up to 1ns) everytime the diode moves from the conducting state to reverse operation (i.e. when the switch closes).

Do I need to worry/care about these? Is there a chance that the LT8364 fault protection logic triggers (since Isw gets > 7.5A)?

Thanks
