Rain Sensitive Wipers

My Laguna has Auto Wipers, it's the first car I've had with a luxury like this. I thought they were faulty at first, but after reading the owner's manual, it's normal...

In order for the wipers to work on auto mode, they have to be switched off when the engine is turned off, to then be turned back to auto mode when the engine's turned back on.

Here's a excerpt from the owners manual:

"Each time the ignition is
switched off, it is vital that you
return to the park position A to
return to the rain sensor position."

I'm sure there's a logical reason to the system working this way, but seems odd we have to turn them off when the engine stops?
