Auto lock feature when car put in drive

I noticed after the last software update done earlier in late winter that the locks do not automatically lock when car goes into drive or hits 5 mph. I now have to manually press the lock button to lock all the doors. Any ideas?
My dealership tech thought I was talking about the 1 click / 2 click on remote to unlock.

Look in the user settings in the dash

I second scosgt
In MY19 that I purchased recently, I can change the setting in the dash menu. As far as I remember, the options were do not lock, lock in P, or lock in D.

There was a thread on this a while back. Some cars, including mine, don't have this option showing in the dash. If I remember the thread, it had to do with factory assemblers being lazy and not turning on this feature when building the car.

Could also be related to trim level vs. code level used. I'd definitely pester the dealer about this.

In one of the most recent service bulletins, after the update for some reason the option that was there before has disappeared. Even if the option to change that settings was there before, it isn't there after the update. Seems to be an 'error' in the software update.
