      If it only the drivers side, off side, that are on then it sounds like they are parking lights.
      So many cars, so little time!

        It's the parking lights, ignition on ensures you cannot drive with only parking lights working.

            If its park light you should have that on the headlight switch. It will have Park, off, side, main and fog positions. Park and fog I believe need to be pushed in then turned. Maybe a PO put a 3 position nob on the 5 position switch as the park position is after the off.

              A point of interest for some.... the very early pre production cars had a 3 position light switch, when the mk1's went into production the switch with a parking light facility was added.
