Question Moisture sensor in Kenmore dryer

I have 3-6 years old kenmore dryer, I bought off craigslist.
When I set the dryer for auto shutoff, using moisture sensor, it shuts off properly when the load is dry, but left alone it restarts a while later only to run for a few more minutes.

Is it a problem with my unit or a "feature" of the Kenmore, which restarts when enough moisture from the cooled down load condenses on the sensor?

I think that is a feature to keep your clothes from wrinkling.
