Is the auto start-stop linked to a specific key?

Yesterday my husband forgot my keys were in his coat and he took them to work, so I had to use the spare key. We've had the car 6 weeks but this is the first time we used this key. I was out most of the morning, the engine was warm, and it was a miraculous 50 degrees out, but the a.s/s didn't engage. Normally it does in these conditions.

Is the feature linked/coded to the specific key? I've never minded it turning on, I'm just curious why with that key it didn't. I figured it would be an all or nothing feature, not key specific (if it in fact is).
