Frunk alarm/side collision warning Aust and NZ

Has anyone else had an occurrence such as this?

Frunk alarm- on two occasions now the car alarm has sounded, both times due to the Frunk sensor showing the latch is open, on both occasions the latch is clearly secured, the warning still shows even after opening and re-closing Frunk, on both occasions the official outside temp is 40C+ and the car was parked with concrete walls on 2 sides that traps heat ( plus a dark colour car) Frunk warning goes after 5 minutes of driving.

Side collision warning- dozens of loud cars and motorbikes have passed as close as 1 metre to the Model S without incident, the only 2 occasions the warning has sounded is due to 2 stroke motorbikes, both more than 2 metres away. I thinking it may be due to a particular resonance rather than decibal level.

or, perhaps, the sonics may 'see' the 2 stroke exhaust smoke.
