I use Saitek yoke/throttles with FSUIPC on all aircraft to assign and calibrate the axes.

Did you try : unplug your usb throttles and test with just the default keyboard keys ?

Try this, in weather settings set your outside temp high, 30'sC and do the same thing, on idle and turn off brakes, I wouldn't expect it to move.
With low temp you may get creep, the 737 actually does that.

It's related to why runways in hot places are longer than those in colder regions as the engines produce different amount of power.

I commented on this a few years ago whilst in a 737NG simulator and that was the reason.
But make sure your throttles are calibrated.
