Yes this does happen, on all VW, think its more of a feature, treble tapping keyfob will open all windows on all VW and Skoda which is also made by VW. Manuals don't mention delay openings but both me and my brother in laws windows open around 3 mins after locking car on occasion windows do open, for this to be a fault would be very strange, so guessing its another feature to open windows on a hot day!

This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.
Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.
VW lock the gas tank with central locking possibly the actuator stuck or dead or the door not unlocked try locking and unlocking all doors several times and observe if all doors are responding If all doors are locking and unlock the gas tank should also unlock If not most likely the actuator or solenoid is bad at 2009 this should be a warranty issue so let VW pay for it before you try it.
Hope this helps, it it does please leave feedback Thank You and Good Luck
all vw MUST be reset after battery dies/changed.put key in door,unlock/hold key over 30 secs(windows go down)then lock/hold key over 30 secs(windows go up/sunroof closes)then press unlock button on remote for 30 secs......RESET DONE......(try this for fun....sit in car after turning off engine/remove key,drivers door keypad is still live(until you open door)ALSO when engine is running lower any window and then raise up with fingers in top of door,the window will rollback.(if you do it once it hurts..twice it really hurts..three times it traps your hand in.)ALL THIS is NOT in the handbook.......
you have just found this out.it is a standard feature of all vw/audi/seat/skoda cars
unlock/hold key over,the windows will go down
lock/hold key over the windows will go up
then unlock the car with the remote,car reset.
sit in car with engine on,switch off engine(do not open any door)driver can open/close any window(you can even put your hand into window frame and it will rollback,all on its(not for fun)
if windows rollback after you have used button to close them you may have sticky runners/rubbers.
this is not in the hand book,tell all your friends.....only a german car.....
this is a std feature....no really, its what vw call safety rollback... to reset ...take key out of ignition,lock car,leave for 15secs,then unlock car with key.holding key over untill all windows are down fully then take key out wait 15 secs put key back into door and lock car,windows will shut hopefully all the way this time...if you put your hand in whilst closing window it will "rollback"with key in ignition... NOT DOOR.
I had the same problem on my 1998 passat and the first thing i done is take off the drivers side controls for electric windows etc(first step to door card removal) and upon disconnecting the multisocket and putting it back on just to try before going ahead, everything worked again.My problem was N/S rear and O/S/F doors wont open/unlock and drivers front works with key but does not work central locking or window etc.Just a wipe with WD40 on a artist paintbrush to lube it and it was fine but i could see fine damp in the door(i live in Birmingham, U.K and it was snowing for a one month period) which i suspect was from the un-usual cold weather we had.I had lived in East Sussex prior so from warm to freezing was most likely the cause as the door lock froze and one door even flew open as the catch froze and the locked door appeared closed but just stuck closed, wd40 solved that also.Hope this helps.
One thing... If your last 3 doors works fine it's mean that problem is only in your drivers side. In VW like nickalxjoe wrote is air pump. So there might be an air leaking which you can hear. So if you can hear from where air running out try to fix this first.
In the same way as you can use your key to open the windows by unlocking 2 times and holding the key in unlock position the windows will open, the criminal broke your lock and used a screwdriver to the same affect. You can also use your key to close the windows by locking and holding the key in that position. If the sunroof is open it will also close.
