They leave the outside switch turned on, and just control the outlet plug with the inside switch. There are also other ways to do it too.

I would check the inside switch for the electric heating element and make sure it is even connected to anything. It's possible they used a control panel with an inside switch but didn't even wire it for an inside switch.
Now that's very possible that it has a switch on a panel they put in every unit but isn't functional.
