It depends on where it's parked when you do it, I'm not sure how sensitive the interior scanners are but large insects flying around inside the cabin might be enough to set the alarm off, if you're worried about it you could just lock it without setting the alarm.

Greg's spot on, the confirmation that the alarm hasn't been activated is that the door LED doesn't start to flash immediately after locking, there should be a delay of approx 10-15 seconds, whereas if the alarm is activated the LED should start to flash as soon as the vehicle is locked.
