Is is done at step 3 most of the time. But Tesla mess up (they shouldn't, but they do) on occasion and it doesn't happen until later. That's when a post turns up here from an angry buyer. The fault here is a bi diffuse, Tesla take some blame (for messing up removing it), the seller (for mis-representation, or ignorance), and the buyer (for perhaps not doing their homework). Basically, Tesla need to fix their systems so that a car that goes through their hands never leaves it mis-configured.

I would like to see the documentation when the car leaves Tesla’s hands to see if any blame goes past Tesla.

Buyer do their homework? If I buy a car from a used lot, I expect everything on the car goes with It. Wheels, seats, windshield, entertainment system, and any software that exists in the car at the time of sale. What other homework does a buyer have to do? If Tesla forgets to do it before they sell it - its Tesla’s loss and problem. If you apply this to any other accessory on a car - the argument is nonsensical.

Unless Tesla is providing a refund for the features purchased for the vehicle, when the vehicle is traded in or re-sold, those features should transfer with the vehicle, excluding FUSC (Free Unlimited SuperCharging - which was a free item, except for some of the early vehicles where SuperCharging required a purchase of the hardware).

Presence of features like EAP or FSD should impact the trade-in/re-sale value of the vehicle - and Tesla should not be taking those features away.

No. This is solely Tesla's fault. All they have to do is configure the car properly prior to auction. It is a simple process that they can't get right.
