My BMW iPhone app and OEM alarm

When I lock/unlock my car with the fob, the alarm system is also armed/disarmed.

If the car has been locked/armed with the fob and then I use the My BMW iPhone app to unlock it, the car unlocks/disarms.

However, if I then use the My BMW app to re-lock the car, the doors lock but the alarm is not activated. In order to activate the alarm, I have to go back to the fob again.

Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, is it functioning as designed, i.e., is the iPhone app not able to control the OEM alarm system?
