When I open the UI the parameters are always folded up this way:
  •  
but I like to have them unfolded, without clicking every arrow, like this:

You have to click the arrows I am afraid.

Unless you edit the library parts, and turn of the dependency buttons for all of the parameters in the parameter list.
But if you are using standard Graphisoft objects, that is not a wise thing to do.

Since they are just headers, you could swap to using the Title parameter type instead of using the parameter group(?) function. That is if you want to remove the collapsible function all together.

It doesn't matter what the parameter type is - title, length, boolean, etc.
It is the dependency switch that controls the expanding arrow.
A dependent parameter will automatically make the parent parameter BOLD as if it was a title type, but it can still be any type.

They probably can stay unfolded as a default if You use the ui script and ui_listfield command

instead of the plain vanilla parameters view...yet the hideparameter all, (_list of ones not to hide_)

has to be in use not to show the parameters themselves
