Seat belt buckles, perhaps?

Sounds bogus to me.  Sure, you won't need it most of the time, but
why bother to disable it?

Considering that the remote locking stops listening after a week of
inactivity, disabling the lock defroster would be an incredibly dumb thing
to do.  If this is true, the A4 would not be the car to leave in long
term airport parking during the winter.  (Not that I'd do that by choice,
anyway.  That's what my old beater is for.)
