When going downhill and compression braking, the first three will go to D when the speed stabilizes, three will hold in the paddled gear.

What's up with that?
I noticed something yesterday coming home from work. My original statement holds true as long as there seems to be some kind of load on the vehicle, such as engine braking or acceleration. If I perform the same test on fairly flat road, it goes back to D almost immediately.
