This makes about as much sense as a 3 dollar bill. I think those owners left their headlights on or something.
I dont know for sure, but i would imagine there is some sort of computer or electronic subsystem involved with the engine or transmission that is only disabled when putting the car in reverse while it is off.

i apply the parking brake without even thinking about it & usually leave it in first (unless it's on a decline, then reverse)
