Anyone encountered issues relating to voicemail transcription going a little crazy and running down battery via "Siri" in battery usage? I watched the activity monitor using Xcode when I received voicemail, and "com.apple.siri.embeddedspeech" jumped to the top of CPU usage and went haywire for quite a while. I honestly didn't realize Siri services handled the transcription, but it's completely obvious in hindsight.

Filed a bug report and Apple engineers are looking into I, but it could account for some unexplained battery drain. It occurs without regard to Siri being actually enabled in settings.
