Maybe this explanation was intended for small children.
Considering how there is a difference between those who have actual problems with seal leakage vs those who are only used to torque converter backed automatic transmissions it seems like when there is nothing wrong but it behaves differently they still act like children sometimes.

Yes, the motors might engage to prepare the clutch pack for the engine start, but they are either off or on, not sleeping vs awake.

If Ford would just fix the cars when they have issues and stop dithering around with hiding behind it being normal characteristics when there is something obviously mechanically or electrically wrong with it, that would help quiet the angry masses.
