Looks to me as a legacy bit of buggy remediation code that was never fixed and may not even be required in the k3.

If it is simply a bug in the firmware, Pentax should have nailed it long time ago. I think it is more of a hardware design problem. Very possibly the power analog circuit design if I would venture a guess. All Pentax DSLRs seems to be very sensitive to battery ever since *ist days when off-the-shelf AA batteries were used. I believe Pentax must have looked in that direction hard and that is probably why Pentax later went with " proprietary" batteries for K-series - to have a better control of battery quality. When I bought my first DSLR, the AA battery flexibility was one factor that drove me towards Pentax. Not any more, sorry to say that.
