Auto hold applies the regular brakes at a stop when the engine is on via the DSC, not the parking brake. It only engages the EMF module on shut down, the exact same as when you shut down the car, the parking brake comes on.
Since the parking brake is used every time you shut down the car, it does not suffer from lack of use. This is the default behavior on the E70
