Diesel Benz explained that in detail some time ago, as that was a mystery for years.
Evidently new (additional) key comes ready to use straight from the box.
If you order replacement key, that one needs to be programmed on the rack where the lost key was, what will disable lost key.
With newly purchased car, I would make sure to buy replacement key and get confirmation that the car doesn't have enabled keys that you don't have.
Would be sad to find out that somebody stole your car using "lost" key.
