Re: The last episodes explain why Sasuke hasn't/won't return home.
Not a fact, your conclusion.

His interest did arise the minute he poked her head but after that everything fell flat.
Sasuke was never interested in Sakura, as he canonically stated. After the war, he most likely just tried to produce a heir to his clan, but failed and decided a second attempt wasn't worth it
They did more then kiss and hug to make Sarada, just because he comedically denied Sakura a hug or a kiss doesn't mean there isn't a intimate connection. That's child logic, Sasuke will never display his affections for anyone in the form of PDA he just won't. Oh wait do you have scans of them sleeping in two separate beds while they were in the village.
Sasuke is still not interested in her, given the fact that, besides never bothering to visit, he denies her even basic physical interaction, like a hug or a kiss (lmao)
I have no words for this!
Sasuke couldn't even recognize his daughter
Fanfic, just because Sasuke has taken interest in Boruto doesn't mean he's dismissing Sarada's because she's already proven herself to Sasuke (her abilities) and he seemed impressed to say the least. And going into the movie Sarada was already debabtly more advanced then him so I think not.
Sasuke ignores Sarada while focusing on his best friend's kid, seeing in him actual potential.
