I haven't slammed on the brakes yet, and hope I never have to. I also have not seem it "hang revs" after stopping - yet - and hope I never do :)
Most of the time if you stop even if you stop fairly abruptly it won't do that, only if you were really going and then suddenly stop, something I try not to do normally and the engine was wound up in lower gears it seemed to hold onto the engine speed longer than absolutely necessary.

I think I had finally managed to run into a use case that more people may see more often, which is a sign that they are typically abusing the vehicle most of the time as that had not happened before or since.
