Fuel Filler Cap opening by itself?

Hi guys,
I m enjoying my preowned e90 325 lci, i got one thing irritating me is that sometimes when i go to unlock my car the fuel filler cap also opens, it pops out & sometimes doesn't. Its very irritating as i once drove off after unlocking the car & a passer by mentioned the fuel lid is open. Why is this happening? i thought you have to press the lid to open it why is mine opening by itself?

Thanks.

My Merc also has this feature (must be a German thing) - I think it has something to do with the car reminding you to fill up or expecting to be opened for fuel. As the AMG goes through a lot of fuel I actually quite like it. Of course I think it can be coded in/out like most things.
