Headlight On Indicator Light

I have a recently purchased 2016 Latitude 4x4. I have the lights set to auto turn on. I have just noticed that the green headlight on indicator on the dash does not illuminate when the headlight come on. Is this due to it being in auto setting or should the telltale light come on regardless?

Also, if the headlights are in auto mode, does the instrument lights dim/brighten according to light levels or they just come on at whatever brightness you have them set to manually?

I have a 2016 too and I've never seen an indicator light for my low beams in auto mode or manual; is there even one? In auto mode, the interior lights will dim to whatever brightness setting you have, unless it is in the "max" position which stays the same day or night.

Thanks Revigor. I assumed there was a lowbeam telltale light because its mentioned in the owners manual and doesnt say "if equipped" If you dont have one in your 2016 then we either both have burnt out dash lamps ot the model simply doesnt have one.
