KS14s - Head/Tail - light management - bugs?

With my KS14s FW 1.10 - I experience the following.

Below only describes light when riding, I have ignored standstill and brake light features for simplicity.

Light settings - sensor state - result:
----------------------------------------------

NORMAL OFF - (light-sensor in bright location) - white off, red off
NORMAL OFF - (light-sensor covered) - white off, red steady - did not expect this.
TWINKLE OFF - (light-sensor in bright location): white off, red off
TWINKLE OFF - (light-sensor covered): white off, red steady - did not expect this.

NORMAL AUTO - (light-sensor in bright location) - white off, red off
NORMAL AUTO - (light-sensor covered) - white steady, red steady
TWINKLE AUTO - (light-sensor in bright location) - white twinkle, red twinkle - did not expect this.
TWINKLE AUTO - (light-sensor covered) - white twinkle, red twinkle

NORMAL ON - (light-sensor in bright location) - white steady, red off - did not expect this.
NORMAL ON - (light-sensor covered) - white steady, red steady
TWINKLE ON - (light-sensor in bright location) - white twinkle, red twinkle
TWINKLE ON - (light-sensor covered) - white twinkle, red twinkle

-------------------------------------------------

NORMAL AUTO and TWINKLE ON are the only mode where behavior matches my expectations.
Not saying my expectations are correct :-)

To ride my EUC legally in the near future, I need the lights to be always on.
Whenever the wheel boots, it's in NORMAL AUTO, light settings are not saved.

Conclusion, I will cover the light sensor with a piece of black tape :-)

I wonder if all KS wheels behave like this...

I would like light settings to be saved, and NORMAL ON to switch red light on too even when it's not dark.

Have you changed the settings in the app? I would have expected that they should be saved...
