Do brake lights visualize on your touchscreen display?

For the first week I had my Model 3, I had an alert (autopilot camera not working) covering the rendered car on the touchscreen display, so I could never see the tail lights. In a thread I posted about whether or not the brake lights were activated during regenerative braking, a few people said - you can see them come on in the touchscreen display.

I replaced my repeater camera and no longer have the alert blocking my view, but I still don't see my brake lights come on when regenerative braking or pedal-braking. Is that only something shown in other models? Or is the effect so subtle I'm missing it? The headlights show when on, but I'm not seeing anything going on with respect to the tail lights.

Definitely show when braking, or when regen braking enough. Not nearly as bright as headlights show but they do light up a bit.

Yes, but it’s hard to see on the screen unless it’s nighttime. It’s very subtle IMHO. Look for the third brake light.

Thanks. The display on the other cars (maybe an S) is like the glow of the headlights only red.Very prominent.
