As far as I am aware, it is (as previously mentioned) a feature to stop the wipers trying to activate when you start the car with frost on the screen leading to damaged wipers.
The Passat auto wipers can be left on all the time. They simply turn back 'on' when you go over 15mph. I guess the assumption is that if you are moving at more than 15mph, then they shouldn't still be frozen to the screen!
Currently in martin999's garage:
