If you you know how to control fans under Windows with T2 chip, I'd implement it...
Next month I'll get a 2018 macbook pro for a week or two to do some more tests.

Bad news, looks like Apple blocks access to SMC under Windows. Checked again on the MacBookPro15,2 (13 inch). Related blog entry

Is fan control reset to auto on shutdown request yet? That's needed at the least to enable using this app and also booting into bootcamp.

There's a comment about that:

There is a "workaround" for that, it's a bit messy but can help someone to make his job...
1st, keep in mind, if we use mac fan control in macos - in windows automatic os fan control will not work. fans will just continue to spin on the last value.
So, either, before going to windows - disable overriding system preferences in macos OR set them to fixed values of your choice. Reboot and enjoy the fans spinning at the speed YOU want them and not the one someone else have decided for you.
Cheers
