Forcing fuel to the engine

If the kickdown switch is being used to start out the car in first gear aren't we over fueling the engine by kicking the pedal to the floor? Any logical reason why MB starts their cars in second with a diesel engine that requires RPM's to operate efficiently. While I'm asking and maybe a little off topic, but what would the conditions be if an injection pump is either providing too much fuel, or too little because the drip timing is off in either respect?
