Cylinder Shut Off?

According to many sources, the W220 introduced in Geneva in 1998 had an option of shutting four cylinders off at steady driving. Is it actually true, is it installed in all S500 s? What about the american versions?

Some Cadillacs from 80's had the 4-6-8 system.
It was one of the biggest lemons.
Hopefully Mercedes has it improved.
Mechanical parts don't like switching on and off under the load. Take a sample of 4-Matic from beginning of 90's. From what I heard 90% of them drive only on 2WD mode.
