I've heard similar rumors, but I have no hard evidence for it being true.

I certainly do get need-to-frag ICMPs back when I try "ping -D -s (something
large enough)" from systems out there on the internet to my local t-online
dynamic IP address.

This, IMHO, shows that t-online can't be blamed for PMTU-D blackholes.
