They can probably be disabled somehow. Not sure how exactly. Maybe as simple as disconnecting it. Try a search on YouTube for a video explaining it, or a forum with more information on them.
I have found most any optional feature on a car can be disabled. You just have to do some research to find out the procedure.
I hate automatic door locks, seatbelt bells (I do wear seatbelts), etc. All that stuff can be shut down, but often require disconnecting the sensor for them. Sometimes hard to get to and require removal of trim pieces to get at them.
