Transmission Fluid Change (Flush) and Filter.

Had the transmission serviced yesterday (September 13) as part of routine maintenance at 75783 miles (121,000) km. Transmission Tech told me that from his inspection the tranny appeared to be in great shape. When I got home I put the GT in reverse and notice a bit of a rough shift to the rear, this happened a couple of times then calmed down. I call the transmission shop back and was informed that when the old fluid is drained and new fluid and filter added the transmission has to re-learn its shift steps, similar to putting a new battery in a S197.

I may be wrong, but that doesn't sound right to me. Has the issue corrected itself?

Anybody else on this site ever warned to steer clear of transmission flushes? Is this urban myth?
