I queried this with my dealership and was told that this has been programmed into UK market cars to prevent people locking their keys in the car (apparently we british citizens are the worst for this). I would rather it just left the boot unlocked afterwards, least you are forced to use the car lock button afterwards! I used to use it until i realised the rest of my car was being left unlocked after use; My delareship said to forget the button exists and just unlock/lock as normal

Anyone else from the UK have this behaviour, or is my dealership fobbing (excuse the pun) me off?

Mine seems to be the same. Odd that I've had VW group cars for the last 12 years and the boot release just unlocked the boot and locked it on closure, the other doors were not affected. Perhaps it's a case of treating customers based on the lowest common denominator.
