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.
