I'd be curious if you find this to be true, as this functionality is critical for me to ever consider the automatic. From the M235 user's manual:
Sport automatic transmission: prevent
automatic upshifting in M/S manual
For vehicles with Sport automatic transmis‐
sions, automatic shift operations are not per‐
formed, at maximum engine speed for exam‐
ple, if one of the following conditions is met:
▷ DSC deactivated.
▷ TRACTION activated.
▷ SPORT+ activated.
In addition, the kickdown is deactivated.
