That it does. I live with this everyday since I used Vag-Com to reprogram my car to provide for auto-locking. Unfortunately, this can be a security issue in parking lots. For example, you are exiting your car but you only want the driver's door to open, and only when you are ready, not when you take the key out. I've found that the software supports a feature whereby if you manually hit the lock button then the door(s) will not auto-unlock when you remove the key from the ignition.
