1. 2007 Rabbit 2.5 manual transmission RPM remains stuck high while shifting gears

Hello,
I have experienced two things for which I am not sure if they are connected:
1. Sometimes while shifting gears (manual transmission) from lower gear to upper gear at RPM higher than, letís say 3,500 Ė 4, 000 RPM, when I release the gas pedal and press the clutch, the RPM stays stuck (does not drop down), I even finish shifting the gear and RPM does not drop down yet, like my foot constantly presses the gas pedal while shifting gears. It does not even act like I did not release the gas pedal on time (before pressing the clutch) so it stays on for a split second and drops down, it simply stays stuck at high RPM.
2. When the vehicle is moving ( 2-3-5-20 km/h) being shifted into neutral and gas pedal pressed once in neutral (to e.g. 2,500 RPM) and then quickly released while vehicle still moving, the RPM remains stuck at original 2,500 RPM, sometimes even for 2-3 seconds. That ONLY happens when vehicle is moving, when vehicle is steady the engine can be revved even to very high RPM but the RPM will slowly come back to normal.
I have been driving manual for almost 20 years. Vehicle has cca 26,000 kms, no faulty codes, synthetic oil changes every 8,000 km at dealer only. I have tried gas from 87-94 octanes from different manufacturers, does not matter. When I sit and drive my friends '06 2.5 jetta, never had anything like that.
Just guessing, is there any "RPM amorthiser" or something like that, that controls RPM to drop down slowely while shifting?
Just to mention, occasionaly my vehicle starts to vibrate like it might stall while e.g standing on a traffic light. Searching for the possible answers, I found http://www.vwcoils.com/Page1.aspx , which claims ignition coils need to be replaced because my vehicle is affected by this action.I think it has nothing to do with described #2 problem, just wanted to mention.
Otherwise, the clutch releases (cuts off) perfectly normal and sharp, even when intentionally kept shortly pressed with slightly pressed gas pedal ( no worn clutch disc symptoms )

Help appreciated before I go and see the dealer

So far explanation is a "normal" rev hang which I beleive is crap
1. Some hyundaies had the same isse, resolved with flash update
2. It is not normal on VW and other cars (i.e. opel vectra) in Europe - explanation: in Europe there are different engines...
