I can be set as Lock which does just that or it can be set on Auto which allows the charger to be removed after a full charge. I tried mine and the lock did not keep me from removing the plug. I'm thinking that maybe that is because I have the key in my pocket. Is that right?
I've only charged at home, and so far left my switch in the "off" position, but just now went out to check. The car was still waiting for a timer charge to start later, and I set the switch to "lock". I heard a click, then went to the front of the car with the key fob in my pocket. Pressing the button on the J1772 connector didn't let me pull it out. One thing I did do first was lock the car. Could that have been your difference?
(I trust you know it's not really a "charger". The charger in the 2013 is part of that big shiny stack under the hood, and removing it from the car would be a significant repair shop operation.)
