Yes, that's what usually happens when you replace an incandescent bulb with a LED. If you also replaced the interior lights with LED you would see the same thing. I don't know if there's a fix, but you could try adding resistors in-line with the LED bulbs and that might solve it.

I replaced my low beam, drl, and fogs with led. The only one that I have the same issue as you with is the drl.

I changed both the fog and DRLs with LEDS from Diode Dynamics. Sometimes they look as they are lit. But never killed the battery.

No issues here on my headlights or fogs

I also added led turn signal and drl strips.

What brand of LED bulb did you use for the headlights?
