I pay close attention to this as well, but my F30 with Sport Auto always drops to 1st gear when I dip below 3 mph.
The loaner E90 Msport I currently have only drops down to 2nd gear at complete stops. It is a Sport Auto transmission as well. To ever get it back to 1st gear I have to shift it manually.
