Rear parking sensor active with shut down engine?

A quick question.. I noticed that the rear parking sensor remains enabled, active and keeps beeping loudly once I parked the car backwards and switched the engine off, assuming that the manual gear switch remains in reverse.

As I have a gear lock which do requires to lock in reverse, I really wonder how to avoid this behavior.. it's pretty annoying. Anyone knows if it's possible to switch this feature off and keep the sensor active only while the engine is turned on?

I drive a manual and the sensor stays on even when not in reverse and with the engine off. Annoying.

You need to press the start button a second time to kill power to the car. The first press just shuts off the engine, but electrical power is still on until you do a second press.
