Did you take a regular (non-AGG) DUI? It could have been part of your requirements. Sometimes prosecutors will agree to drop aggravating factors, but not the requirements that go with them. You should ask your attorney to clarify. Good luck.

In many states there is a disconnect between the DMV penalties and the consequences in the criminal court action. One doesn't necessarily automatically affect the other. Consult with your attorney about this to get the best answer since your attorney knows exactly what happened and why.
You WERE ARRESTED when you went to the drunk tank. Those not arrested go home. Although the prosecutor dropped the aggravated portion of your DUI, DUI first simple carries a one year mandatory ignition interlock even when they drop the aggravated portion. And MVD licensing is independent of the court system. Do not drive without the correct license and interlock for that offense carries one year in jail and will net you 30+ days in jail no questions asked!
