I will be very interested to see what "QSL rate" you get after uploading 16K contacts. I highly encourage others to utilize LotW for satellite confirmations. I personally love paper and always QSL via mail but enjoy the "instant gratification" of a Logbook of the World QSL.
Out of roughly 1200 satellite contacts I've uploaded, I am seeing a 4% QSL rate via Logbook of the World. Most of those are repeat contacts who regularly upload to LotW like me.
Just for other statistics... I have only confirmed 63 grids of the 200+ I have confirmed on paper. And the majority of those 63 LotW confirmations are from stations like WD9EWK or K8YSE who have gone rover.
My advice is to ensure your satellite names and grids (yours and theirs) correctly match up for all contacts. It is critical for LotW satellite confirmation. If you did any portable or rover satellite work outside your home grid, this becomes very critical.

I'm in the process of moving my main logging program from LOGIC to DXLab. I've been using DXLab for years as a backup and also to track my LOTW progress. I never really tried to include my 16,687 satellite contacts into this until now. I vaguely remember this subject, subject being sat contacts in LOTW and DXLab. I'm looking for help in doing both. If anyone wrote anything up, like a procedure to follow it would be greatly appreciated. I tried searching the DXLab documentation this morning and I was overwhelmed, there is a lot of it :-) Thanks in advance for any help...
