I can vouch that since using FS2020 in September 2020, if you depart an uncontrolled airport without first extinguishing the taxi to runway ribbon, your takeoff will NEVER be logged. If I have selected another runway for takeoff, I still have to taxi to and extinguish whatever ribbon the sim generates to some other runway, and then taxi to my selected runway.
I do not have this problem at airports with towers. At KOAK, I now always ignore the taxi ribbon to taxiway W1 because there is a sinkhole across the full width of the runway at the start of runway 30 that will destroy the landing gear if the speed exceeds 5 knots. Instead, I taxi to the hold at taxiway W3, ask for and receive clearance, the clearance itself seems to extinguish the taxi ribbon in front of me that eventually would have led me back to taxiway W1, and the takeoff is recorded in the log.
So yes, I have more landings than takeoffs, and ALL of the takeoffs that were not recorded in the log were at uncontrolled airports where I did not extinguish the taxi ribbon.
Hope that helps.
