The default site-start.el has this section:

;;; ESS
;; Following the "source is real" philosophy put forward by ESS, one
;; should not need the command history and should not save the
;; workspace at the end of an R session. Hence, both options are
;; disabled here.
(setq-default inferior-R-args "--no-save ")

Which you can comment to require R to ask the question.
