Happened to me at LUNCH today.

Had the FOB dropped into the cup holder. Arrived at restaurant, hopped out, locked door from armrest, shut the door.

My Jeep promptly BEEPED 3 times and unlocked the door. Whew, would have been a major hassle if I had locked the FOB in the Jeep.

Worked as it's supposed to.

I did that once and my Overland wouldn't lock, because the FOB was in the arm-rest.

Another time I left my wife in the Overland while I walked into a store with the FOB in my pocket, the motor running, and the air & radio were on. The EVIC evenually displayed "the key has left the vehicle". The wife thought that was funny: it is.

Wait, you certainly CAN lock your FOB into the Jeep:

Lock the open door with the FOB (not via armrest or door handle), while inside or in close proximity to the jeep. Throw the keys onto the seat and shut the door.

Locked - no beep.

Re: Smaller key fob

There is another way to lock the fob inside. From the manual:

"If one of the vehicle doors is open and the door panel
switch is used to lock the vehicle, once all open doors
have been closed, the vehicle checks the inside and
outside of the vehicle for any valid Passive Entry RKE
transmitters. If one of the vehicle’s Passive Entry RKE
transmitters is detected inside the vehicle, and no other
valid Passive Entry RKE transmitters is detected outside
the vehicle, the Passive Entry System automatically unlocks
all vehicle doors and chirps the horn three times (on
the third attempt ALL doors will lock and the Passive Entry RKE transmitter can be locked in the vehicle)."
It would be hard to make the same mistake three times.

did we really need to put the words "accidentally lock yourself out" in order to keep you from trying to make that point...anyone who would lock themselves out the car in the way you suggest should not own a vehicle..
