2011 Auto start-stop option, change default?

I asked the dealer this and they seemed clueless, has anyone found out how to set the default when you start the car?

According to this post:

It remembers your setting accross restarts. Not true?

No matter what, it's always lit OFF when you start it back up again. It's just as well as I find the whole thing rather off-putting in every respect. Start/Stop belongs on econo-boxes and geriatric cruisers, not on sports cars. Quite silly that the button is lit to indicate that it's off. That's a throw-back to the old stereo hi-fi systems that had more lights on when off than on when on.

I'm also finding that it is temperamental on when it actually activates a shut off. I tried to demo it to a friend and it wouldn't work.

Is there any relationship to settings/modes and whether it will turn off the car at a full brake stop?

Seems to me like if you have a loud exhaust, every time the engine autostarts at a light, etc., people will think you're revving your engine at them. Or that you stalled and are restarting.

Orrr, perhaps this can be a good excuse to get out of an exhibition of speed ticket. Officer, I have this feature where my engine starts automatically and sounds like I'm revving

Not sure about modes/settings but if you read the thread that the post I linked to is from, you'll see a pretty thorough description of what circumstances it works under and what circumstances disable it.
