Default Fender Stereo & Power Seats - Not Options on 2014 Sportwagen?

Fender Stereo & Power Seats - Not Options on 2014 Sportwagen w/ Nav & Sunroof? Yet these Options pop up in the Buyback Calculator.
But the JSW w/ Nav & Sunroof comes standard with 10 Speaker Stereo and Partial Power Seats. So how are these valued in Buyback? Anybody been through Buyback process with a fully optioned 2014 JSW with Nav & Sunroof?

Only the prescribed options in the buyback calculator are considered. The others have no effect. This has ALL been hashed out long ago.

Bear in mind that certain of these options may have been picked in order to be representative of a vehicle's trim level; the answer to the complaint "... But they're only paying me for the sunroof but not the higher end stereo and leather seats and etc etc etc" is that "... the sunroof that they're paying you for, only came on that trim level together with all of that other stuff anyhow, so in reality the payment is for the trim level, as represented by having that sunroof that was only available on that trim level". (this is only a how-it-works example and is not intended to be specific)

If the buyback calculator allows you to select options that were never actually available ... then no one will (legitimately) be able to truthfully select that option anyhow, so it's meaningless. (well, they CAN select it, but it will be superceded at the time of actual buyback based on the car's VIN and what it was actually built with)

It was never the intent for the buyback amount to be so granular as to reflect every individual conceivable option. Tradeoff for relative simplicity of the process.
