You had to have a pretty hot oven to cook-off the rounds they tested. The important point was that a round detonating in the gun barrel was potentially dangerous while those that detonated in a relatively open space were not. This makes pretty good sense if you consider that Newton's 2nd law:
The acceleration of an object as produced by a net force is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, in the same direction as the net force, and inversely proportional to the mass of the object, works best with a directed force i.e. it can only go out the barrel.
So, if you think the temperature in your car will go over 300-400 degrees F, you should at least unload the gun and store the ammo loosely.
