I don't think this  is the issue. The coughing occurs very fast after the
start before the carbs could be frozen. For instance when I do not pull the
choke far enough it is easy to reproduce directly after the start of the
engine while driving the 1st meters.

This might be icing in the dashpot, causing the dashpot to stick

My Cooper S did this until I added a dashpot heater band (common to
SU Carbs from Canada and Northern USA). The heater warms up the
dashpot area of the carb to prevent icing. This fixed the problem.
