Your RX330, and all later RXes, makes use of DBW for a myriad of reasons but the primary one being to "protect the drive train". The "abolition" of the old style ATF line pressure pump with the introduction of the RX in '99 resulted in the transaxle not having the capability of completing a second gear change in quick sucession to the previous.
With your RX330 you are likely to encounter 1-2 second re-acceleration engine torque delivery delays as a result of this drive train protection measure.
