Drum brakes releasing at stops

Back when I had my 2008 Sierra, occasionally I would have similar issues however it felt like I had been rear ended after coming to a complete stop. IIRC, I had to have the drive shaft slip yoke lubed several times at the dealership while under warranty. I believe there was a TSB issued. Not sure if it's the same issue you are having but sounds similar.

Hill assist was not an option in 2008. And if your rear brakes don't work, assist wouldn't work either.
