M3 Engine Downshifting

Has anyone else realised in the sound clip of the v8 on the test bed in this forum http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=52774 near the end when the engine starts downshifting something strange happens. Right after the downshifts and the rev blip when the clutch is re-engaged the engine starts to rev normally again for 1 second then there is a very short pause then the engine resumes slowing down again until the gear needs to be changed??
PS: In case you didnt uderstand I know the M engines usualy blip the rev each time you downshift, thats not what im talking about.

If this is something normal them please excuse me for i have no experience with M cars.
