Default Rear Defroster auto-activation

Anyone else notice their rear defroster/mirror activated on a cold day when using remote start? I've been using remote start just to start her a minute or two before I leave the house and notice that when I'm getting in the rear defroster is active. It hasn't been below the auto on comfort setting, and only turned it back on, but nowhere does it say that it should be coming on with the seats and steering wheel. I know for sure that the first time I noticed it that they weren't on, today however, it was below 40deg and all were on. Interesting. No other issues to speak of so.....I guess as it gets colder more consistently I can figure out the logic. Maybe it uses the rain/moisture sensor on the front windshield and turns the rear on accordingly?

I did a remote start this morning, 37 degrees out. When I got in the truck, the front defroster, outside heated mirrors, steering wheel heater, and driver's seat heater were all on. I leave the climate control in auto mode.

I noticed this with mine as well, only I don't have "Auto" climate.

Not that I am complaining, but I have noticed my A/C comes on on really hot days, and the rest on cold/cooler days.

Another bonus with this truck imo.
