To detail my experience, car goes for software update (ID6).
I go to pick up car the next day, and discover that vehicle tracking in the app couldn't find the car at the dealership while I was waiting for it to be washed before being handed over to me.
Get to car - navigate through menus to find the setting had been turned off, check box to turn it back on, restart app and app started reporting car location again.
Yeah, I understand that progression. I suspect the app locator and the stolen vehicle tracking aren't the same at all. We can see where the car was parked in the app, but the ConnectedDrive team can activate a mode that allows them to see the car in real-time.

The only way to for us to know for sure would be to contact them and get clarification I guess. But I don't get any notification in the car that features like SOS won't work, but I do get this notice if I were to use the web portal.
