Cold start controls

Just replaced the IP and noticed that the power is on the cold start solenoid, has power even after it is warmed up ( I'm in Tucson) temp today was upper 80's.
Question is where is the temp sensor and does it matter if it is on all the time?

1990 Dodge 250 5.9 12V 727 auto Bone stock 256,000 miles when the odometer quit working a couple years ago. Needs paint bad, Az. sun baked it off. Afraid to re-paint it, fear it will get stolen and took to Mexico.

Sure you aren't confusing it with the shutdown solenoid, vs the KSB?
