Gen 1 Chargers - Does the Charger Button Open the Charge Port?

So I've been looking at EBAY to try to secure a 40amp Gen 1 charger so I can charge at 40 amps without having to
pay $525 from Tesla. A couple of them that I've looked at now say "charge button does not open the charge port door".

Would this be specific to those 2 units, or did all gen 1 chargers not open from the button?

That functionality has always been there. I think that is just people saying that the transmitter in the handle has broken and doesn't work anymore to send the opening signal.
