Default Parking brake

Why is it that when I place my 2017 GS A8 in park the parking brake does not automatically set. My other cars do this.

Seems a no brainer that it should as it protects the transmission "key" from breaking and leads to laziness in not setting the brake.

Also when the transmission is placed in Drive and the throttle is pressed the parking brake is automatically released. (I assume this is to keep us fools from breaking something.)
