No it's not unfortunately. If you're in N downchanges are slow, and if you pull the paddle too close to the last pull it won't change down, so you pull again and there's your 3.
The good news is, if you put transmission into R it transforms downchanges.
Try it the same as you always do tomorrow, first in N, then in R, Each pull will change down, guaranteed
