I don't know if it sounds the same, I only know that it sounds good, I don't care if it matches the sound.
The same goes to you, don't be fooled by a NEVE logo in a pre, if CLA used Behringer, you would see Behringer in the HIGH END FORUM of Gearslutz, Waves Behringer Series and most people would think that SSL is a venereal disease.
I agree with the beginning, but the end is a strange comparison, no? Neve isn't just a logo, it's a brand. Same applies to behringer. If behringer brought the same quality to the table as a Neve, then yeah, you'd see a waves bundle and top engineers would be using it. However, it isn't, so you don't.
In any case, Transient Designer is great on Kick, Tom, even overheads/rooms (used sparingly) when they are out of control.
