Well, every restart is not a cold start, particularly if the engine was just on. It might momentarily use more fuel, but this will often be outweighed by the length of the coast.

And the idle in neutral and with 0% throttle is different is most cases from being in gear with 0% throttle. This is easily proven by a Scangauge or SuperMID.

That's why.
