It should. It's kind of a default winter mode. If you want to start off in first, shift from D to 2 then back to 2 at a standstill. You'll start off in first.

The reasons are probably steeped MB tradition like using vacuum central locking into the 90s, no tilt steering wheel in a luxury car until the 90s, Becker radios, etc.
