    I wonder if this causes confusion to many owners who don't realize this interesting "feature"

    From the Owners Manual (that I imagine many don't read fully)
    ================================================
    To preserve battery life, Model S is designed to temporarily disable the Auto-Present Handles feature when:
    • The key has been out of range for more than 48 hours.
    • The key remains within range for five minutes after all doors have been closed.
    In these cases, extend door handles by.touching one of them, or by pressing the unlock button on the key. There is no need to reset the setting.

    The next time you approach Model S, provided the above conditions do not apply, handles automatically extend.
    =================================================
