As I see it, that is not a feature, that is a problem, something that has gone wrong. I drive a 13 SE and it never has behaved that way.

The Fan should be working anytime the A/C is on. Make sure Fan is running.

It is true that the AC compressor is an electrically driven compressor. The one thing to note with these cars is that you can manually turn the AC compressor off and on - does the neon green VFD display above the actual climate controls near the bottom of the center stack say "AC ON" or "AC OFF" when you are expecting the cold air? If you press the AC button which is the furthest button on the left does it improve the situation? There's a toggle for AC on the touch screen climate controls too.
Other than that maybe something is wrong with the compressor.
The MAX AC button on the knob and the red defrost button quickly put all the controls at maximum for either climate condition, usually you can press the "Auto" button twice to get the climate controls to reset to a thermostatically controlled situation with AC enabled.

Sure sounds like it isn't. I wonder if the cord got disconnected? Maybe fuse?

I googled around and apparently (at least on other cars) this is a symptom of condenser fan not working.. When the car is moving there is enough airflow for cooling to work, but not when stationary.
