When I imitate D.D., I primarily do so with ultra-creaky voice and strong nasalization, not egressive clicks.

There are two forms of raspberry: I asuppose you are referring to the bilabial variety, which is clearly a velar egressive. In my household, however, the sublingual/interlabial variety is standard, and I *think* (it's hard to be sure) that this involves glottalic rather than velar closure.
