Release w/o lens enabled is the default setting for the A7/A7R.

It is? Had to enable mine. Had to do the same thing when I got my 5 and 5n

It was already on for both of the A7's I got (exchanged one due to a hot pixel). It was off initially on the NEX-5 and NEX-7 I used to have.

On the other hand, Sony is apparently shipping some A7's with an LCD protective sticker and some without (both mine were without), so it may be that not all of them are configured the same out of the box either. One way to find out would be to do a factory reset and see which way the setting goes, but I'm not curious enough for that.
