My first 4 years in the Corps I was an 1833 (AAV Operator and crew chief), and no they don't do a 180 and then unload the infantry. The AAV will always face inland (ramp towards the water) and will begin to lay suppressive fire until everyone is unloaded. The AAV's may actually push forward until the grunts can press on.

As stated above if it is a permissive environment anything is a possible, from landing online and going in a 180 defensive position, to a wedge formation, etc, etc.
