Auto A/C temp control - cold air - Floor position

Our 2002 Ody with auto air blows cold air through the dash vents (when we want heat) before the engine warms up. The dealer told us Honda never put in a cold air shut off on the Hondas like GM/Ford and most other cars.

To try and get around this (and cold air blowing thru the dash vents even when the engine is heated up) I put the mode control into floor thinking now only the air would blow out the floor vents. I found in the Floor position air still comes out of the dash vents by each window. Only the air from the middle vents are stopped in floor position. This doesn't seem right to me either. Does everyones 2002 Ody work the same way?

"Turn off the HVAC for a couple of minutes"? "Roll the knob to turn off the side vents"? Not exactly the FullAuto system we were expecting in the EX. When manually selecting the Floor mode, I would expect all air to be routed to the floor.
Even my old Sable wagon was designed more intelligently (and still works perfectly!) Now if only it's head gaskets didn't blow..
