Yes that is a leak.  change it to

procedure TIBCustomDataSet.FreeRecordBuffer(var Buffer: TRecordBuffer); begin    if Assigned(Buffer) then      ReallocMem(Buffer, 0); end;
and statically link IBCustomDataset.pas to your app (Might need IBQuery.pas too).

For most of XE3's beta TRecordBuffer at the db.pas level was defined as 
Array<byte> so was allocated with SetLength and deallocated with setting it to 
nil.  Very late in the beta it was switched back to a pointer and this line was 
missed (Actually someone on the dev team switched it back for me and I just 
verified changes, this didn't change cause they missed it so I didn't catch it 
either, still my fault).
