EC Mode on the R170 SLK32 ?

Does anyone know if the EC Mode button affects the shift points? The manual only references it turning off the A/C, however, it seems to also keep the car in a higher gear and is less likely to shift down with the EC mode button on. This seems logical for better economy, but the manual doesn't mention it affecting shift points.
