I can certainly understand the safety features of having it automatically upshift at redline, but to have it automatically downshift defeats the purpose. This isn't a true sport mode.
They mean it doesn't automatically shift into or use 6th. Ever. You have to manually do it. Hence the "S auto mode" portion of their statement.
