Anyone notice FSD slowing down to match speed limit when it see's Police lights?

I know that the latest feature rollout had something to do with detecting emergency vehicles - but the other day I was driving at night. I was on FSD Beta, going 69 in a 60. There was a cop pulled over up ahead with his lights flashing. My Tesla proceeded to slow down all the way to 60 as it passed. I couldn't tell if that was a consequence of a vehicle being detected on the side of the road and the tesla slowing down as a caution or if it was recognizing a police car and slowing down to match speed limit. Thoughts?

My understanding is that NoA will alert you when it detects flashing emergency vehicle lights on control access highways at night. I have had it happen a couple of times with a warning that emergency vehicles were detected and I was responsible for controlling the speed. Car slowed down to 50mph both times.
