Summary0000013: engine startup continues even if rotor brake is disengaged
DescriptionDoing a manual engine startup, you have to engage the rotor to turn on an engine. But right after that, you can disengage the rotor, while the engine startup continues. There's no penalty doing so.

Perhaps it nicer to create an engine failure of some kind, if this is done by the user.

I'm not sure if this is an issue. You have to disengage the rotor brake to start an engine, and so start the rotor spinning.

But during flight, you can disengage the rotor as well.

I don't think this is a bug.

As I understand it, it's not a rotor brake. You can engage or disengage (during autorotation) from the engines.

Not sure why you have to engage rotors when starting up. Disengaging them wouldn't cause a fault as all it's doing is removing the load on the engines.
