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.
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).

Have you done any software update on yours?
