Are people who have traveled to Turkey still getting automatic (or near automatic) SSSSS with TSA for weeks after their return?

Two seconds of searching. About $1050. Can play around with dates... And a OW from FRA/XXX-IST on outbound can be found for ~$50.

Pretty tempted to stay a few days in IST due to the low hotel rates... debating if it's a good idea for me to go there though..
