Sensor is bad. Needs to be replaced. You are correct on what it is supposed to look like.Sorry for this stupid question but please confirm my understanding. I think my low beam headlights are also incorrectly on during bright sunlight (switch is set to Auto). A short phone call and description to my local service dept said they are functioning as they are supposed to. I don't think he is correct.
To avoid descriptive errors on my part, here are a couple example pictures to illustrate...

This is literally the same thing that happens to me. Did you ever get any resolution?When I left my office today, the sun was a little lower and the trees were blocking direct sunlight so the Daytime Running Lights came on as they should. As I pulled out of my office and headed down the street where the trees are cleared, the sunlight was able to directly hit my sensor and my headlight indicator on the dash came on. Definitely either a bad sensor or a software issue.
