Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Almost all modern electrics do feedback, the power electrics for the AC motors make that easier. (And it can be done most efficiently just on the power system also used by the German railways.) In fact, I believe the regular S-Bahn multiple units of the latest generation (not in Berlin) absorb a greater percentage of braking energy with regenerative braking than ICE-3 sets.
