With the hood open, I held the hood switch down, locked the car, and released the switch, nothing happened. No chirp when I locked the car either. In case it matters, the top was down while I was testing this.
With the hood down, I locked the car and bounced on the rear of the car to set off the rear motion sensor, again no alarm sounded. Same results as the dealer found.
One additional piece of information, when I did the installation I did not disconnect the battery. I simply plugged the connections into the switches as I installed them. Just in case that matters, with most devices it shouldn't but you never know.
