At 2.5 GHz there is a 40 degree phase shift at 31.5 dB attenuation vs. 0
at 0.5 dB attenuation.  Is this in the neighborhood of what you are seeing
your experiments?

This shift likely has less to do with the <size> of the attenuator and more
to do
with the parasitic capacitances in the switches and the measures that
takes to compensate for them.
