One of the things that I most like about my MX (2018, March 100D Version 2019.12.1.1) is the Sirius XM radio. (I'm a politics junkie hoping to overcome the drug in 2020...). I've noticed that whenever I get into the X, my iPhone Music app appears on the phone and starts playing - albeit silently, and the car plays XM as usual. The only real impact I suppose is that the iPhone is presumably using the battery unnecessarily.
I understand that the car communicates with the iPhone to upload calendar and/or contacts, and possibly even playlists, but why would it start the Music app? The really irritating thing is that when I leave the car, the Music app continues to play silently, so it can be there in the background until I pick up the phone and see the app playing away on the lock screen...
