It's called Pulse Width Modulation and currently neither EFI Live or HP Tuners allows for it to be turned off in the 6L80 (although it can be in the 4L60/4L80).

The reason it's put in there is for driving comfort and it can burn up the aftermarket clutches however I just had Yank go through my converter (after recently blowing my transmission) and he said the lockup clutch was holding up just fine after a year.
