I was told by the JLR person that although Global Closing of the windows using the key fob (holding the lock button on the fob for 3 seconds) is mentioned in the manual it is disabled in the US (and perhaps other countries) because of safety reasons. I guess the concern is that you could accidentally close the windows on a child or a pet you left in the car with the windows cracked? (Which is probably a bad idea to to begin with)
I do believe you can lock the car and close all the windows remotely using Jaguar Remote app, so I don't know how that jives with the safety concern.
Its not safety it is probably because of our outdated regulations (like hey sensors! They don't exist!) and lawsuits/liability exposure. Some German cars I have had have done this while other manufacturers disable it in the US. Same with folding side mirrors, some manufacturers will disable it.
