OSX "Agent" process uses absurd CPU resources

Whenever I allow the Battle.net launcher to download WoW updates in the background (I assume the Shadowlands patch since it is 22Gb that is trying to download) I notice a process called “Agent” that takes well over 100% of my CPU. Disabling the background download reduces this load to less than 1%. I am running a brand new MacBook Pro with a 9th gen i7, so this CPU load seems way higher than it should be for a simple background download. Any fix for this?
