You must have a '72 or 73 car if it's a US spec one, and yes, that's a design feature, primarily for use in Europe where many countries require the outboard parking and tail light to be illuminated when parking on-street at night.  I don't believe US squarelights are so wired, and pre-modell 71 US cars aren't either, but the extra (unused) terminals on the turn signal switch are there, so it could be wired up.

 

That feature also explains why left and right parking lights and tail lights are on separate fuses.  I drove my '73 for several years after I bought it in 1978 before I accidentally discovered the feature.  One of these days I'm gonna figure out how to wire my '69 so this feature works on it too.
