Some Canon lenses (like your EF macro lens) have mechanical manual focus. The camera doesn't know that you are focusing manually unless you set the lens switch to MF. Actually, you should never turn the focus ring unless the switch is set to MF first, to prevent any possible damage to the mechanism.

This is assuredly not true. Many Canon lenses allow "full time manual focus". Here's a discussion: https://community.usa.canon.com/t5/EOS/Damage-to-camera-motor-or-lens-if-we-manually-turn-focus-on-AF/m-p/236207#M30991
