This problem is not unique to RDM can happen with plain old DMX too. If you've put the fixture into a strobe or color cycle mode and then lose DMX control, many fixtures will hold their last state until signal returns.

Arguably, the right way to handle this when you have talent on stage is to use the IDENTIFY_MODE QUIET PID from E1.37-1.
