I have a pretty good oversight in the PSCR/RB80 divers community esp. in 
the Netherlands and Belgium. I am not aware of anybody that is currently 
logging pp02 from a sensor. Even ppO2 sensors are used by only half of 
the group, but without logging attached; just for reference in more 
critical moments in the dive.

It is just not considered useful on a PSCR by most. We know that the 
ppO2 drops and that we have to vigilant when ascending and when 
switching gas. And we are perfectly happy with a known maximum drop from 
a decompression point of view.
