They don't actually do that to get up to temp faster, it is because a cold motor runs ruff and misses at low RPMs when cold. The programs are set to keep it at an RPM that it won't spit and sputter.
Say you bust it off and the markers are set at 120, 160, and 180.
While the engine temp is below 120 the programming might be set to keep it at 1200 RPM. Once the temp gets up to 160 the RPMs migh drop down to 1100 and then down to what ever you have your OP temp idol at when you temp gets over 180 degrees.
The last value is what sets the idol of an engine, so if you want to change you idol you just change the last value.
The OP's computer might have just had a hiccup and missed one of the marker points.
