Sounds like someone is shifting very slowly, not accelerating harder to compensate, and being followed by a major douchenozzle.
Coasting between gears generally does not involve any deceleration. The mere interruption of acceleration is enough to cause people without a concept of personal space to be taken by surprise and need to brake, and also it is followed by resumed acceleration at a lower rate
(because taller gear). Depending on the driver and car, there may be a moment of engine braking as the clutch is engaged in the next gear.
