It doesn't appear to be a feature.If you look at the estimated time you can run:

sudo -i

Then run:

sleep 60; shutdown -h now

This will make the system wait 1 minute before shutting down, obviously change the value to how long the torrent predicts it will take to download.

You could suggest the feature for transmission at:

This may be a feature in one of the other torrent clients in the repositories.
