You may have an injector that is worn or sticking, allowing fuel to leak past what should be an inpermeable seal when the engine is at rest. This may be hard to diagnose without testing each injector individually and probably won't throw a code because it is ocurring after shut down.

Don't take this to the bank 'cause I'm not a qualified tech but I had similar symptoms on a Subaru and a worn injector was the cause.
