If yoru vehicle doesn't have a power timed circuit you may have it connected to a continuous hot that is allowing this to happen. In my Escape the radio will continue to play and I can power the windows up or down after I remove the key for 10 minutes or until a door is opened. If you remove the key with the radio on and it shuts off when you open the door you have a timed power circuit. If not you most likely have the radio wired to a direct Hot that is hot all the time.
