My '97 A4Q also has factory remote locks.  The blinkers only flash when
locking the doors (and arming the factory-alarm), and the locks do indeed
take several seconds to unlock.  Even odder, they unlock over a two-second
period or so.  It's almost as if they're hydraulic or vacuum based rather
than electric!

This does not bother me at all.  I mention it only because Jet's dealer is
correct, at least for the '97.  (BTW, I believe the '97 fob looks completely
different from the '96 fob too.)
