Would you be willing to provide a little more detail as to where in the special software you went to make the change?
Sure, though I'm not sure a dealer would be willing to do this. But if they are, they need to use NCS Expert, open up the CAS master ECU, choose the IHK sub-ECU module, and switch the MSA_MEMORY option from nicht_aktiv to aktiv. That will put Start/Stop into Last State mode. I'm sure there's a way to use coding to have it always start up enabled or disabled, but I was more interested in achieving Last State, so there you go.
