I believe that the answer is much simpler. IMO, MDM is simply anticipating a potential oversteer and is applying outside front brake to correct. As was mentioned by Bigjae, a square tire setup would accentuate this type of MDM intervention.
Agree. NFW it's touching the inside front wheel in a turn. If it were understeering, it would brake the inside rear wheel.
