However, someone from inside can open the doors with the interior handles, which simply means the car is not deadlocked. Do I do anything wrong ? Is this a problem or just the car does not have the deadlock option ?
If you get the rapid flashing of the hazard lights and the total closure for the windows and sunroof activates, then the car should be deadlocked. You should also hear the clunk of the locks activating when deadlocking occurs.

I always thought that the whole point of deadlocking was that crooks couldn't get the doors open even if they've gained access to the interior of the car (e.g. by breaking a window or prying open the top of the door frame.) The wife's out in my Lag at the moment, but I'll have a go when she comes back, as long as I remember. It may be a fault on your specific car, or it could be a design feature.
