That's the way mine are, just push the button and that control is now live, but it must be in neutral / idle . When you activate a control it makes the other one un-activated. It's only 1 station at a time. So if you are cruising along and switch stations when you push the button the engines go to idle and neutral , this is with single lever controls.
The delay can be adjusted to a certain extent. Lots of adjustments available when you go into setup mode.
I didn't have any trouble getting used to the delay, but the ease of movement and remembering to activate a control took me a while.
You will like the controls much more than the Detroits
