EDL weirdness

A quick question...

A couple of times now, I've noticed some odd behavior with the EDL on my S6.
The car has BIRA System 3 installed.

If I accelerate hard and get significant wheelspin when I'm in snow or on
ice, the EDL will kick in and almost bring my car to a stop. It feels like
it's overcompensating for the spinning wheel(s) and braking all the wheels.

Under moderate or light acceleration in the same conditions, I don't really
notice the EDL.

Is this how it works on all EDL equipped cars, or does the brake upgrade
cause this to happen?

Note to self - take the wife's EDL equipped A6 out and thrash it in the next
