iPhone resumes playing podcast 5 seconds after Gen2 car is turned off

I have an intermittent issue with my 2017 Gen2. I'll be playing a podcast or something from my iPhone, I'll shut off the car and as I am about to get out the podcast will suddenly resume and I have to manually stop it.

I've tried a number of variations (bluetooth instead of plugging in, hitting pause on the screen before turning car off, hitting pause on the iPhone before turning car off, etc.) but they all randomly exhibit this issue.

My suspicion is that I am so slow getting out of the car that it thinks I want to sit for a while and want my radio to keep playing, kind of how it leaves the lights on until you've had a chance to walk away from the car. But does that make sense?

I may also be an outlier in that I usually leave my phone in the car instead of carrying it away every time I stop.

This is with an iPhone5, but I also saw it with the iPhone4.

Anybody else seen this happen?

My 2017 Premier does the same thing. It's stops playing when I open the door though.
