I have noticed (or imagined) that the clutch seems a little "stickier" i.e car seems to "chug" a little more, when in non-sport mode, particularly at low speed. Has anyone else noticed this? I can take the criticism if it is my driving skills (or lack thereof!)

The clutch is unaffected by the sport button. I imagine you're noticing a difference between how much throttle vs clutch you need when starting off. Since the throttle-by-wire programming is changed when you turn Sport mode off (it makes the throttle plates respond slower to pedal movement when Sport is off), you probably need to respond with a different clutch engagement action. With Sport off, you will need to press further on the pedal to get the equivalent throttle opening.

I agree with CSBM5. When in sport mode, I find myself slipping the clutch a lot more. The worst part is that I am so used to the non-sport mode motion that I can't bring myself to just pop the clutch when I know that I am slipping it too much.
