I've proven it to myself many times over and over again. It definitely defaults back to eco on when the engine is restarted. The ONLY thing I didn't test is if there's some sort of short memory where it will remain in eco off when you shut the engine off and then restart it again a few minutes later. But I know for a fact that it will revert back to eco on if you shut it off overnight and start it up again the next morning.

I just tried turning eco off for a 20 min drive then let the car sit for 20 min locked while I was out to lunch. Got back in the car and started it Eco mode was still off. Either you don't have 2015 or you got bad luck. I thought I was going crazy but I'm not the only one that has confirmed that it sticks whether the cars off 20 min or over night on 2015's

Like I said, I thought my 2015 (yes, I have a 2015, lol) kept the eco setting where I left it. For a short time it will remember the setting, but overnight it will always revert back to eco on. It's not bad luck, it's the way the thing is supposed to work.

Maybe try programming driver seat position with Eco off. I have done that and enabled key fob auto setting, on the first day I got the jeep and Eco never turned on again - two weeks now.

Nah I just tried leaving it for over 13 hours and Eco mode still stayed off no matter what my setting is remembered even if I remote start too you are the only person claiming to have a 2015 that doesn't have Eco mode that stores. My car doesn't have seat memory so I don't think that has anything to do with it but I'd be interested to see your build date on your car.

Mine stays off for any amount of time once I switch it off. Even after sitting for over a day.

Noticed something weird today. I pulled into my garage and the Eco light was off. When I put the trans into Park, the Eco light came on.

Perhaps your Jeep is haunted?
