I can find no evidence of that.

AFAIK what it does do unlike a trickle charger is stop charging completely and monitor the voltage of the battery. When voltage drops to a set point it starts to charge. This is why it is called a tender and not a charger.
15 mins isn't long enough, I agree. Bike should be run till engine is good and hot. Usually about 30+ mins, with the engine going through a variety of revs in its range.
