Many automatic cars do start off at 2nd by default, not just the F10. The 1st is there for more extreme conditions (towing, steep slopes, sports mode etc).

I drive mine in D only (hate the gear holding of the DS mode) and can assure you that it always starts in 1st no matter how slowly I step on it. That's what the 1st gear is designed to do.
Have you done any software update on yours?
