Yes that's a culprit of the factory tune. Since the SVT Focus was aimed for performance on small tracks and we don't have a very strong low-torque, the factory tune had a placement where the revs would stay up during a shift to keep you in that high-torque range.
Weird, yes. But that's it. It happened to me alot before I got a tune on my ride years back.
