Everything that I have read about rev-matching points to it being done for smoother engagement of the clutch when a vehicle is still moving and you downshift. Since an automatic doesn't have a clutch I don't see how any rev-matching would be required. Here's an article I found on Car and Driver that talks about rev-matching and it is definitely for manual transmissions.
