I have participated in Samsung Betas for numerous years. I HIGHLY recommend that after you install the beta update go ahead and reboot into recovery mode and wipe cache partition. This will save you a lot of pain with slow downs, crashes, etc. 

I do this after every device update no matter how big or small. Fixes many issues which at times includes battery drain.

All android versions since 9.0 automatically wipes the cache when updating. This is why you see the "optimizing apps" screen upon the first boot..

Incorrect. This step is doing exactly as it says "optimizing apps" to function on the updated version of the OS.

All the system and app cached and dump actually remain on the cache partition which is what usually causes improper functionality

I actually do a factory reset, which seems to fix 99% of the issues I have experienced. I've tried the wipe cache and it doesn't fix all of the issues I've ran into.

True, factory reset would be the preferred method but I can't be bothered with setting up my device again lol. I usually clear the cache twice and it usually does the trick

I used to do the full reset as well, until they came out with the Galaxy App Booster as part of Good Gaurdians. Running that after a software update seems to take care of any issues I'd previously come to expect after an update. That said, since that's not working on the beta, I've done the cache wipe mentioned here. Hopefully that helps. I hope others find the Galaxy App Booster as helpful in 'real life' as I've come to find it. Cheers!
