Sorry for the late response.
Tried mine in every different mode & 100% it will always upshifts every time when approaching the redline.
I can also confirm it will "beep" if I forget to downshift in semi auto.
Noticed Jabawok's has had a few mods, so maybe has the engine re-map raised the rev-limit & subsequently changed the upshifting of the qtronic?
Just a thought.

Mine only beeps if manually I try to upshift when going too slowly or downshift if too quickly. If I forget, it changes up or down either way automatically.

My 2.4 with paddles does not auto upshift in manual. It does downshift which I'm not a fan of. I' like it to be like a manual car in manual mode. I think it downshifts too early.
