It does this as a convenience because an EET and and identified crossing point on the FIR is a FPL requirement. One that many ignore.
Just gave it a try, SD does compute the border crossing time, but it appears to not generate a waypoint at the border in the FPL route. The DCT point in the shown route is also not on the straight line between the two airports and it is not on the border crossing also.
