recorded over-revs on stock engines?

I often come across in a variety of random threads the fact that several people and dealers have recorded some pretty insane overrevs from stock cars or even tuned cars with the regular 8400 redline. I am talking about DCt cars.

How is it that the car can record revs as high as 8900 in some cases with a DCt? I often drive mine right to redline and especially in 3rd often hit the fuel cuttoff just a bit and then I shift.

If a car randomly overrevved even if you did nothing wrong and had no tune to increase limited, what would bmw do in that case? I thought the nannies in both DCt and manual prevented from overrevving within each gear (minus money shifting on a manual)
