Front seat Occupancy Sensor

I have automatic seat heating feature turned on.
It works fine on driver seat, but randomly on passenger seat.

Passenger tried remove seat belt clip, no warning sound at all when seat heating is not activated.

The question is, will airbags fail if the car will not recognize passenger?
VW replaced that sensor at year ago.

The yellow PASSENGER AIR BAG indicator light
fig. 28 comes on as soon as the Advanced Airbag System has deactivated the front passenger airbag

All airbags should go on no matter if passenger is detected or not.

In the 2022 NAR R at least, the front passenger airbag is deactivated and will not deploy unless the system detects that the seat is occupied and the front passenger airbag "ON" light is illuminated.
