They definitely have some annoying PID behavior left over, I particularly am annoyed at having to push pretty hard after an interval is over if I didn't quite keep up at the end. I usually let it pause the workout. They clear out the integrator term so it's not as difficult to start up
AFAIK there is no way to clear out the I term. It is not in the Ant+ spec. TR likely changes mode from targeted power to simulation. This is what I do in my own app. At the end of interval training I switch from “erg” mode to simulation @ 0% grade. I’ve noticed that my kicker seems to remember what it was doing the last time it was used. Maybe my imagination.
