Either they left it loose by mistake or there is pressure building inside the transmission. This could force its way out of the dipstick tube. Sometimes you will see transmission fluid around it as well. I think I would have to take it back to them and get them to check it out if it keeps popping out on you like that. Could be a plugged vent someplace they need to repair.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

If it is a plugged vent will it cause the vehicle to sputter

No, normally you wouldn't even notice unless there was fluid leaking out of the dipstick tube. Sputtering is usually the result of a bad ignition coil or spark plugs. Sometimes a weak fuel pump will cause it as well. Usually it would give you a check engine light.
