Seriously doubt that it is normal though I don't have this particular model.
Sounds like you have relays that are sticking or a bad thermo switch on the
radiator. Could also be a bad temp switch on the engine as well.
Pull the codes. The Stealer MUST have done that ... That would have been the
LEAST that they should have done to help.

I dont have the same model but an older Audi 100 with electric fans and
climate control, but the normal behaviour is that the fans are on under one
of the two circumstances:
1) When the thermoswitch in the radiator feels to hot (normally when air
flow is to low due to low driving speed or zero speed)
2) When the climate control has the AC compressor on.
If you can get it to stop by fooling with the controls for the heat/air I
would expect that the compressor is running all the time causing the fans to
be on all the time.
On my car there is no controls between the radiator thermoswitch and the
fans, so fooling with the heat/air controls would not cause the fan to stop
if it was the thermoswitch which were faulty.
