Adaptive Auto Transmission Reset Procedure

I have heard of an automatic transmission reset procedure that goes something like the following: Turn on the car such that all the accessory lights are on but the motor is not running, depress the gas pedal all the way to the floor, keep the pedal there for 30 seconds and the transmission will reset to the original factory settings (it will "unlearn" the adaptive settings).

My BMW Service Manager (who has been very knowledgeable and honest on service matters) says he never heard of this procedure, it's not in the BMW service manuals or technical bulletins, nor have his fellow mechanics heard of it.

Can any of you confirm if the adaptive auto transmission "soft reset" procedure exists? Please pass on where I can find the procedure for my 2008 550 with comfort access if it exists. Is the procedure in the owners manual (I can't find it in mine), described in a technical bulletin, or described in any other BMW literature?
