This is not specifically covered. Google the Tarion Construction Performance Guidelines PDF and read rule 4-11. Only loose siding and accessories that detach from the home are covered.

Write this up as a "poor workmanship issue". After all, it can be very difficult to sleep at night when the soffit is banging around. Obviously that is not a normal.
