2005 Automatic high revs at +-100kph

Hallo fellow-members,
I have just bought a 2005 Mini Cooper automatic transmission with just 43kms on the clock.

She seems to hold on to high rpms too long at high speeds on the motorway. It stays around 4k rpm and sounds too loud up till about 105 kph, then it will drop to around 3k rpm when I finally drive above 105kph. Further to this, when I take my foot off the accelerator (gas), the revs jumps back up over 4k rpm, and is once again noticably loud, before starting back down.

Is this normal for a 2005 automatic? I am not sure if my car has continuously variable transmission (CVT) or not. The dealer didn't know as he didn't specialise in Minis, and I guess someone in the forum could tell me.

Do excuse my ignorance. I am not at all technically minded, so please remember that when replying.. i.e. please don't blast me with acronyms and assumptions that I already know alot...coz I don't!! Thanks very much in advance..any sensible help and/or advice is most welcome.
