Door locks have power with battery disconnect open

I am wondering if this is a problem. I have a Sunseeker 3110DS that I am putting in storage for the winter. I have a disconnect on the engine battery that is open and the coach battery disconnect is also open.
I noticed that the electric door locks have power when I hit the lock button and the alarm works too. Is that a problem or by design?
Thanks for any help.

It's by design because the locks themselves won't draw any power unless actuated, but the control module draws power all the time, and if the alarm works it draws a small amount of power all the time.

If you're going to leave it without power to recharge the batteries, then you need to have a way to completely disconnect the power to everything that has any kind of parasitic draw.
