Better late than never to comment.

Venting out the soffit is never as good going out the wall or out the roof. A proper vent that is properly installed on the roof will not leak.

There are very few soffit type vents and most of them are poor quality. One problem with venting out the soffit is that most exhaust air is warm so the exhaust rises as it goes out the vent right back up into the *open soffits which then ends up in the attic.

*Open soffits - are the soffit with little holes in them. There is also solid soffits with no holes but builders don't use that material much anymore.
