The occurrence of oscillations in a well-known asymptotic preserving (AP) numerical scheme is investigated in the context of a linear model of diffusive relaxation, known as the $P_1$ equations. The scheme is derived with operator splitting methods that separate the $P_1$ system into slow and fast dynamics. A careful analysis of the scheme shows that binary oscillations can occur as a result of a black-red diffusion stencil and that dispersive-type oscillations may occur when there is too little numerical dissipation. The latter conclusion is based on comparison with a modified form of the $P_1$ system. Numerical fixes are also introduced to remove the oscillatory behavior.
