Sorry, no, I only know about it on the abstract level. The release notes
for Solr 4.2 says

* DocValues have been integrated into Solr. DocValues can be loaded up a
lot faster than the field cache and can also use different compression
algorithms as well as in RAM or on Disk representations. Faceting,
sorting, and function queries all get to benefit. How about the OS
handling faceting and sorting caches off heap? No more tuning 60
gigabyte heaps? How about a snappy new per segment DocValues faceting
method? Improved numeric faceting? Sweet.

Spending 5 minutes searching on how to activate the new powers did not
get me much; my Google-fu is clearly not strong enough. The example
schema shows that docValues="true" is a valid attribute for "StrField,
UUIDField and all Trie*Fields", but I do not know if they are used
automatically by sort or if they should be requested explicitly.
