Yes, that is correct. That's what happened in my last truck after I added the OEM remote start.
The climate control does not need to be at auto in order to come on with the remote start. But I haven't confirmed if it needs to be on auto to turn the heated seat/steering wheel on. I doubt that it does, that wouldn't really make sense. As long as the remote start comfort group is turned on in the settings the climate control shouldn't make a difference.
