THis is the only car I've owned that actually had an external "button" to open the trunk, so I have no experience from other cars. But honestly, I did inititally "assume" that the keyfob would need to be close in order for the external trunk "button" to open the trunk, regardless of whether the doors were locked or not.
But when I really thought about it, I realized that if the doors are unlocked, anyone could just open the door and press the interior trunk release button anyway, so it kind of makes sense that the extenal trunk button would work if the doors are unlocked - even if the keyfob is nowhere near it.
