Not a problem, my 2014 model J11 is the same. It is probably some diagnostic going on.

Doesn't it come on because when you unlock it the sidelights come on? Look at the instrument panel as you do it.

AFAIK its two functions on 2017 and later:

1. Daytime Running Lights > <
2. Follow Me (after door locking and opening)

Selected on the Steering Column Stalk and when on illuminates the Combination Display green LED

The 2014> J11 has "Follow me home" lighting - it's called:

“Friendly Lighting”

The “Friendly Lighting” function is a convenience
facility. It allows you to provide lighting from the
vehicle after the ignition switch has been turned to
the LOCK position and the headlight switch is in the
OFF or AUTO (where fitted) position. Pulling the
headlight switch toward you once will activate the
headlight for approximately 30 seconds. After that
period of time, it will automatically switch off.
It is possible to pull the headlight switch up to four
times to increase the lighting period up to 2 minutes.



In fact the wording is the same in the 2019 manual:

“Friendly Lighting”

The “Friendly Lighting” function is a convenience facility.
It allows you to provide lighting from the vehicle
after the ignition has been placed in the LOCK
position and the headlight switch is in the OFF or
<AUTO>(where fitted) position. Pulling theheadlight
switch toward you once will activate the headlight
for approximately 30 seconds. After that period of
time, it will automatically switch off.
It is possible to pull the headlight switch up to four
times to increase the lighting period up to 2 minutes.
