A slight leak in the cap will trigger it. It great Jeep put that on the dash. 99% the time other vehicles just give the check engine light which could be one of dozens off faults. Once the gas cap leak is no longer detected the fault code and dash indicator clears automatically. Sometime opening and closing it reseals it better. Since its a ratching action its impossible to tighten it too much which could be a reason as well.
Bottom line there is nothing to be concerned about.
