I have Elixirs on my fretless and they don't feel anything like your description of the DR's. The nanoweb coating feels really slick to me, in fact some people find it too slippery but not me, it's just the kind of feel I want for fretless.
In fact, they seem more gentle on the fingerboard too, so they're just about the perfect fretless string for me.
I prefer a brighter sound on my fretted basses so I might try some of their 'new' stainless sets since the Pro-Steels that I have on my sixer seem just about dead
