I assume you're talking about how fades don't progress linearly, but have more of a curve with accelerated start and stop. As I understand it, this is a function of having Premiere Pro set to use GPU hardware acceleration which requires Linear Color blending. (I hate it!) (Clarification - I hate how the fades work, I am very much a fan of GPU acceleration!)

I've read people say to just deal with it, there's no 'fix' as it's not broken. The only real solution is to turn off GPU acceleration when you output movies, which should render as expected but at potentially drastically increased output time.

You can try stacking a fade transition with a simultaneous (but longer) manual fade via Opacity keyframes, sometimes that helps me avoid the biggest bumps, but it's not perfect or quick. I haven't found any type of fade transition that works as I'd expect it to.
