I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

This may be normal for the vehicle. A lot of vehicles have the Instrument Cluster lights etc remain on after the vehicle is turned off and locked. These should turn off within a minute or so.

If they fail to turn off and are still on after 5 minutes this would indicate to me that you may have a problem with a Timer Module not shutting off these lights. The Timer Module maybe an individual module or maybe part of another module (e.g. BCM).

Hope this helps
