It is not. Sport mode will hold a gear to higher RPMs before upshifting under part throttle, downshifts earlier under braking, allows fairly aggressive engine braking and will generally be at least one gear lower than Drive at any given speed. DS also will not use top gear so leaving it there all day on a long highway run will hurt fuel economy a bit. The differences are most apparent when you start to push the car; in relaxed driving you may not notice anything unless you look at the tach.
