Is the door to the gas cap suppose to stay locked when you press the logo on the key to lock the car ? MY 2005 530i.

Yes.

On a previous BMW, at one point, every time I'd lock the car, I heard a strange noise coming from that part of the car, so I left the gas cap door opened, and locked the car while watching, and sure enough, the little pin that's supposed to lock it was stuck.

And it only unlocks if all four doors are unlocked.

Checked mine and the pin isn't coming out to lock the cover.
