I wish it were that simple, but there is no mandated time nor is there a common 'rule of thumb'. It's undefined, so a bit of a risk; all we can guess is 'longer ownership is less likely to raise questions'.
Do recall that there was a bill introduced this year (that failed) that would have prohibited LEO from reselling off-Roster guns to other CA residents who were not also Roster-exempt.
In my opinion, if the only issue were to be how long one must own a gun before selling it, 'two years' is the absolute safe point - that or longer should never raise an issue.
That is obviously extremely conservative; maybe some other potential seller is comfortable at six months.
I further hold the opinion that 1 month or less is always going to be perilous.
But that's just opinion.

Unless there is some way to amend a bill so you would support it,
the details do not matter
until the Governor signs or allows the bill to become law.
Ask CA law questions in the How CA Laws Apply to/Affect Me Forum
- most questions that start 'Is it legal ...' go there.
