Autopilot emergency breaking question

After trying out the 7.0 update I am wandering if anyone knows of the following:
Emergency breaking had a "strange" internal setting where the car would stop breaking once the speed has been diminished by 25 mph. The driver would then have to push on the break pedal to continue stopping the car. This almost got me into an accident while cruising on TACC when a car in from stopped very abruptly, which engaged Emergency breaking (triple beep) followed by sudden release of emergency breaking after 25 mph drop. Q: Is this 25 mph internal setting still present in Firmware 7?

I am sure there were several accidents due to the setting in the previous versions, including this one in Turkey.
