Is a floating turdy always a sign of malabsorption?

i've been on a high fat paleo diet for a couple of months now. my turdies are always a healthy color and texture but they usually float for about 30 seconds before sinking (sometimes they don't sink at all and sometimes they sink immediately). does floating or sinking really matter or should we be looking at texture and color?

From what I could flush out (haha) of the information I found online, it sounds like floating can be caused by mal-absorption or excess gas due to the activity of bacteria in the digestive system. I wouldn't be too concerned whether it sinks or floats, as you say it looks healthy otherwise. (here is one of the sources I found, might be helpful?)
