Burning rubber is caused by two primary reasons.
Some part is hot from friction or burning.
Around the exhaust there is exceptional heat if rubber is too close and friction if the part with say a rubber boot is failed and getting that hot or rubbing against something else.
If its only when in 4wd then initial look from the CVT output on back to the rear axle dif. Looking for tell tail signs with good lighting and nose. Driving it for a while in 4wd to get the smell up and then getting it up and inspecting may help finding the source faster since your nose should tract if quickly.
If its under warranty drive it in 4wd to the dealer (any dealer) with the smell fresh point out the problem and get it checked. Its up to them to find it and correct it.
