It probably is a launch control. Why not program that into a DCT? It probably isn't mentioned because Ford doesn't want to replace a lot of clutch packs under warranty. They can still claim misuse or abuse since they did not state it as a feature of the car, same as if you did the same frequently with a manual shift Focus. The rpm's do seem right for a good, not too aggressive launch, about the same as you would do with a manual.
