Here are my notes on the kit in question:

Chardonnay Semillon started 2/7/2019 - RJS RQ#2, OG 1.088, FG ?, QA23 yeast, 1 medium char American Oak spiral and included French chips (60gm) during primary fermentation, 2/15/19 SG 1.000, 2/16/19am SG .997, 2/16/19pm SG .993, 2/17/19 SG .986.

Still lots of activity in the airlock a rate of one bubble every 2-3 seconds. I can only imagine that it's just CO2 being released but I've never had a batch go this low AND still bubbling.

Anyone else have an experience like this?

Yes, I have batches go to .990 all the time. .986 is not unheard of.
