Maintenance Reminder

Took delivery of a 2010 E 350 about a month ago. Have been out of town on business, so car has been sitting in the garage. Only has 132 miles on the odometer. My question: When going through the options on the service menu, I observed the message 365 days for Maintenance A. Maybe not exact language, but close. In that I have had the car for about a month, although low mileage, shouldn't the number of days be counting down. Is there a possibility it was not activated by the dealer at time of delivery? Would be interested in your thoughts/opinions. Would like to be armed with some information prior to visiting dealer.

Usually members complain the opposite. Don't worry, it would start counting down or would start showing miles to next service at some point if you keep on driving.

The topic of MB recommended service interval/mileage is not uncommon here... see this recent thread:
