Headlights turning on after parked 2020.48?

I just updated to 2020.48.30 and noticed that my taillights and headlights are turning on in my garage a few minutes after I park and staying on. Sentry is disabled. I turned off the “Headlights after parked” setting, but they still turn back on by themselves 3-4 minutes after parked. I also put my key and phone in the house and just sat and waited and sure enough, all the lights come on and don’t go off. If I lock the doors, the lights flash, but stay on. If I unlock and lock, the lights will go off... but about a few moments later they’re back on.

Any ideas on how to keep this from killing my battery? It’s a 2017 with AP3 and MCU2.

AP3? Perhaps you mean HW3?
What happens if you manually turn the car off from the console?
