A LOT of repeaters with 'DTMF' control have a 'delay line' in place.
This delay line is chosen so that the system can detect DTMF and lock
on it with a very slight edge and prevent any of the DTMF tones from
going out.  If you listen to 'A/B' from input to output you can notice the
delay.  Usually less than 1/10th second, but enough to usually prevent
feedback.  Although under some circumstances it can produce an echo
chamber effect.
