I remember reading my 335i manual and don't recall this

can you put up a screenshot or a page reference?

I assume it meant when you want to, for example, park real quick to go back inside and grab sometimes; not for when you're at a red-light.

if it's the former, you should turn it off; if you're at a light, you're fine.
