Should be pretty easy to see slop due to worn pivots; however I would think that other reasons are more likely for your issue. Assuming that your shifters are functioning correctly, a FD with worn pivots would still stay where you put it.

I wonder how frequent pivots wear out in FDs anyway. Unless you are set up for half-step shifts (a pattern that I really have learned to appreciate), the FD gets only a small proportion of use compared to the RD.

Try a different shifter to see what happens. Also curious to your reference of rubber bands - I have no idea what this is about. Where would these rubber bands come from?
