Technically that's a different situation. When you're in the car you've closed the door and started to drive away, the car then locks and cannot be opened from the outside unless you unlock the car.
This is a little bit different than when you open the door and step outside and then go to lock the door with the car key inside you don't want it to lock unless you have the key with you.
In one scenario you want the car to lock and remain locked (and it does). In the other you might not want it to lock without you having the key with you.
