Not that I care to disable it anyway, I just checked before posting.

My friend's Explorer allows you to disable the rear sensors. I think because it has a towing capacity and makes sense if you want to back a boat into the water without the distraction of the warning beeps.

Since the 2012 Focus is not rated for towing it makes some sense that they don't provide a way to disable the rear sensors.
For the Focus without the auto parking package, when you put the car in reverse a "rear park aid" overlay will appear in the message center, and you can select on or off.
