In my experience it is more social and teasing, playful affectionate mockery.

I’ve seen that. I have also seen, when the first child arrives, an attempt to elevate her own status, get sympathy, be praised for her sacrifices by exaggerating how little he contributes. Meanwhile, many men want to contribute and help but follow the mother’s lead. So she sets him up to failure then profits emotionally by exploiting this to her friends.
