Kostner has taken the reins temporarily following the resignation of former boss Felix Magath, who left after a run of four defeats sent the club to the bottom of the Bundesliga.
The caretaker coach got off to a winning start as Wolfsburg beat Fortuna Dusseldorf 4-1 on Saturday in their first triumph since the opening day of the season but insists he is not considering whether he will be offered the role permanently.
"I was asked to either say yes or no," he told Sky television. "You don't ask yourself how long it is going to be for.
"I am just helping out. We have a cup game on Wednesday and then Nurnberg at the weekend.
"I have got to get to know the team, work with them and then we will see what happens."
Kostner hit back at suggestions that Saturday's win was a slap in the face for his predecessor Magath.
"I can rule that out completely," said the coach. "The team have not said one bad word about Felix Magath or the coaching team, which is good."
He added: "They just felt their responsibility more with the coach gone, and I felt the responsibility too since I have taken over.
"The team showed right from the start what they are capable of."
