^This.

My conclusion is the same. DCT will rev match if your foot is on the throttle even in S1, S2 or S3. I actually use this feature as I usualy use S2 on my DD. If I want a quick downshift while braking, I blip the throttle with the heel and toe technique and I get a nice and quick rev matched downshift .

This behavior of the DCT seems to be part of the software fix for the DCT lag issue, as the car did not behave that way when I originaly got it in 2008.
