Question Rear brake engaged, then slowly disengages

I am having an issue with my rear brake. I recently rebuilt the master cylinder and took apart the rear wheel caliper and made sure it was working. Compressed the pistons in the caliper. Restealled both master cilinder bed caliper, new brake fluid. Etc. The brake still sticks, then slowly releases. I know this is not working right, but what is doing this??

Does it feel like the fluid is not releasing , or does it feel like the return spring in the caliper is weak?

Are you running Dot 5 fluid? Fresh seals in rear caliper? Sounds like the rear pistons are not freely releasing. But just a wild guess hard to say without bike in front of me....

I have seen the rubber part of a brake line partially close off causing the fluid to return slowly back to the master.
