When I first got my diesel I was really worried about allowing the turbo time to cool down.
Got to reading the magazines and saw there was indeed a cool down timer that would allow you to turn off and remove the key. Said it could be set for predetermined times for what ever reason you could think of! Leaving the dog in the truck on a hot day! Never did see one but it seemed like a good idea at the time. Sounds like you have witnessed one!
If I have been flying down the interstate and I stop for fuel, I will let it idle while I'm filling up but otherwise I don't get too concerned.
Hope this was of some help.
