On the automatic climate control the A/C indicator specifically says "OFF" when defrost is chosen. The OP is probably just stating that defrost is still running the A/C even though all indications say no.
Pretty common knowledge that anytime the Defroster selection is made it means that the air is being run through the A/C system to dehumidify it.
