This remark of Darcy's at the end of Ch 8 shows what he thinks of it:
"Undoubtedly," replied Darcy, to whom this remark [about the paltry device and mean art of ladies who undervalue their own sex] ] was chiefly addressed, "there is meanness in all the arts which ladies sometimes condescend to employ for captivation. Whatever bears affinity to cunning is despicable."
To me there is little doubt that he means that mark for Caroline. He finds it despicable how she is expressing all these obviously insincere opinions (since they contradict each other) for the sole purpose of trying to impress him--and it's backfiring badly.
