MD-11 Speed up without throttle

Hello IFC, I was playing IF today and As I was doing PB and starting engines, I started rolling forwards. I checked throttle and it was at 0.

Device: IPad Mini 4
Aircraft : AA MD-11
Airport: KLAX Terminal West G202B

Were you on live or solo?

Live at KLAX. At the gate listed above

This is not an error. The idle N1% is higher on the MD-11/DC-10. 27-28% which will make it go forward with all three engines on and brakes released.

(I was confused about this too during Beta, but then someone who actually knew something informed me)

I think the same thing happened to boeing 767 too.
