Oh yeah, there are loads of real applications. For example, all quantum
chemistry codes that use a molecular orbital expansion to represent the
wave function (the electronic structure) rely heavily on a good DGEMM 
implementation (this includes programs like GAUSSIAN, DALTON, MOLPRO, 
TURBOMOLE, etc... the list is endless).
