If you engage "auto hold" the brakes are applied as soon as the car comes to a stop and the car will not move unless you physically step on the gas pedal.
The "surge" I've experienced has only ever happened in D.

When I do manually downshift (which is very rare), I know exactly what to expect ... an increase in RPM and engine braking. In any case, whether in DS, D, or manual, the car should never accelerate or surge forward while decelerating, but it's happened a few times.
