No honk car lock

Is there a way to deactivate the horn honk when locking a car with the key remote? Or some other trick to lock a VW Jetta without having the horn honk?

I have a rental VW Jetta. If you lock the doors with the key fob, the horn honks for one short honk. If you use the actual key to lock the car door itself, the horn honks. The lock button on the inside of the door does not work when the door is open. As far as I can figure out there is no way to lock the car without honking the horn. This seems nutty to me, and super annoying. What am I missing? I don't have much experience with recent vintage cars, so I'm hoping it's something obvious, although my attempt to google this does not give much hope - various discussions of reprogramming the VGA (?!).
