Zero RPM mode problem

I've turned off Zero RPM mode on my RX580, but after starting up, the fans do not kick in. I have to go to Radeon settings to turn the mode on and off once to get the fans to start. Is this a normal behaviour or  does the GPU have to reach a certain temperature for the fans to start?

(I've turned off Zero RPM mode because I live in an area with high ambient temps and the gpu gets up to 45 degress Celcius on idle)

I believe fan kicks in around high 40s', you can run a GPU-Z render test to see at what temp fans kick in.

Ryzen 5 5600x, B550 aorus pro ac, Hyper 212 black, 2 x 16gb F4-3600c16dgtzn kit, Aorus gen4 1tb, Nitro+RX6900XT, RM850, Win.10 Pro., LC27G55T..

It's a Powercolor mining model.

I previously thought that gpu fans should always run even on idle.

I'll experiment with the settings for a bit to know more about the settings

Thanks very much for your assistance, it's been a great help answering my question.
