I was thinking about getting remote start but not after finding this out
That's how most newer push-to-start cars are, not just Mazda,and it's both aftermarket and OEM remote start systems. As you noted, it's for security purposes because you can get proximity keys online.

I think the only push-to-starts that don't shut off when the door opens is Nissan. But even still, you have to do the takeover process within 30 seconds iirc.
