A secret hand shake and a bit of fun for the engineers to sneak that past the bean counters to take advantage of the dual clutch transmission is unlikely? Considering it seems to set the car up for a quicker launch than just matting the accelerator pedal it seems more likely that it is a form of launch control rather than just a self preservation mechanism. After all if you matted both the gas and the brake while driving its supposed to cut off the throttle via brake override.
