Just about all manufacturers.
Stop-start has gone mainstream.

Adding to the list of manufacturers :
Volvo, Mini, VW, ... well, just about all of 'm.
Not just on small diesels BTW - you could get a 3.0L BMW diesel with start stop system.

I'd be surprised if it caused lubing issues in a modern diesel engine.
Surfaces will already have been oiled by then, so there'll still be a film of oil on them. Can't compare a restart with a cold start.
