Okay, that's sounds pretty normal to me, unless the throttle cable is fraying and causing the accelerator to hang up? But that should be noticeable at other times as well... and dangerous. Is there a question in there somewhere? Modern FI vehicles do this for several reasons, bit the biggest is to help warm up the catalytic converter as fast as possible to bring it to full efficiency.
