I've found a reason as to why the door is closed. When the scene starts, the camera is in the house looking out of the open door, then moves back as the UPS man arrives. He walks through the open door, gob-smacked at all the rubble lying about. He meets Bryce and Hillary, asks for Lara, and we see the door is suddenly closed. However, if you look carefully when he is just entering the house, when the door is open, you'll notice that the area around him is spotless, no rubble. This is because the first few seconds of the scene were shot on location at a real mansion somewhere in England that they weren't allowed to rough up. The next few seconds where there IS rubble everywhere was shot on a proper film set, and the door had to be closed because there were simply bricks behind it!

OK, This may sound a little weird but, you don't always hear a door shut every single time one does in a movie or in "real" life for that matter. The producer(s) and editor(s) probably felt that since the scene takes place away from the door in the living room area that it wouldn't make a difference of hearing the door shut. Plus it cuts away to the Butler cleaning the living room, and he doesn't know that the UPS man is there until he looks up and sees him standing there in the arch way leading into the living room. Had he heard the door, he would have looked up sooner.

In response to the comment by Ihearvoice, this was a mistake, if you watch closely you can see that in one camera angle the door is open, the UPS man walks forward past the door and then the camera changes to a different angle and behind him the door is closed, he is too far from the door to actually have closed it.
