Even more importantly, the shifter should be in the "Park" position when exiting the vehicle.

This car has creep. Lift off the brake pedal it will move if in gear and the car is on.


All I know when I shut the car motor off when not in park the car does not go into gear or roll untill this happened.
Yes you are right the brake should always be applied incline or otherwise.
But when the gear selector shows forward the car should go forward not reverse.
Well see if you can replicate it and video it if it happens. Just be careful
