Would like to bet that 'most people' just get in the car and drive it, and leave these controls well alone - which is the thinking behind the NCAP legislative process ie make it non-trivial to turn off so that it can't happen accidentally, or take it a step further, like VW, and actively discourage drivers from disabling it. People on this forum tend to be, how you say, slightly more cerebral in their appreciation of driving, the cars and associated technology, judging by the quality of the posts, so we're probably not typical consumers and/or drivers.

And following my own logic, VW should have made difficult to turn off LKA but trivially-easy to turn back on.

FWIW....Our other car is a MY21 Skoda and the Lane Keep Assist remembers the previous setting, and is a simple 2-button press to activate/deactivate. Regulations and safety philosophies are constantly changing....

My ID3 operates like this now, turn it off and it remembers - thank you OBD11!

If only I could get the car to remember the last setting of the mirrors so it would dip the L wing mirror on reverse every single time!
