BMW 320i 2011.

Today, I left my girlfriend in the car while I ran into the shop. I locked my car using the fob when I left. When I returned, my girlfriend said she could not get out while I was gone. The internal door latches would open the doors and the internal lock/unlock button did not work. When I got back into the car and plugged the fob into the ignition, the lock/unlock button worked.

Is this normal or is this a fault? I would have thought that--for at least safety reasons--the car could be unlocked or locked using that button, even when the key isn't in.

Does anyone have any information on this?
