No one really knows the precise rotation speed of Saturn.  Cassini is measuring ~1% slower than Voyager 2 measured 23 years ago.

the solution may be tied to the fact that Saturn's rotational axis is nearly identical to its magnetic axis. Jupiter, with a more substantial difference between its magnetic axis and its rotational axis, shows no comparable irregularities in its radio rotation period.
