"On transition"

Just a question as to what ATC ( UK south ) expect?
We were descending at M0.84 with a planned 270 KT transition and were told 250 or below on transition, FMC reprogrammed and allowed the A/C to slow on the transition.
A rather curt transmission to the effect of I told you 250 or less followed after a couple of minutes.
So if you ask us for a speed on transition when do you expect it- my assumption was at the Mach/Airspeed transition, which for us is driven fron the FMC , but clearly in this case I was wrong?
