DRL always have to be on in Canada, the regulations in Canada are different from the US. So yes, it likely is setup differently so I can't turn them off. 2.27 of the owners manual indicates the Canada only part.
DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT SYSTEM
The headlights automatically illuminate at a reduced
intensity when the engine is started with
the parking brake released. The daytime running
lights operate with the headlight switch in the
OFF position or in the position. Turn the
headlight switch to the position for full
illumination when driving at night.
If the parking brake is applied before the engine is
started, the daytime running lights do not illuminate.
The daytime running lights illuminate when
the parking brake is released. The daytime running
lights will remain on until the ignition switch
is placed in the OFF position.
I just went out and played with it some more. If I pulled the parking brake & turned the car on, only the LED strip would come on, moving the control switch to any setting had no effect. Taking the brake off, the headlights would come back on, again in any position this happened. So for me anyway, the LED's aren't a part of the DRL system at all, just the headlights.
