Same in mine. You can manually activate 'follow me home' by pulling the lights stalk when leaving the car but that's not what your are asking about.

I don’t think that the external lights come on in any of the latest Toyota range of cars in the uk when unlocking the car I know that the latest rav4 excel has puddle lights that come on when you unlock the car. 
 

I can’t understand Toyota’s way of adding features to there cars eg: my corolla excel has not got a heated steering wheel yet the latest rav 4 excel has also you can specify a Corolla T/S 2.0 with a pan roof but you can’t on the 1.8 it doesn’t make sense.

I connected mine via Techstream and there is no option to activate this feature. I have settings for dome lights, footwell but nothing to activate DRLs or headlights

Here are the puddle/welcome lights on mine. OEM kit for Quasqai tapped into the dome light.

So they come on when you unlock car and interior lights come on ye? This would be possible to have lights in the underside of the mirrors poss some led strip

Correct. They turn on when I unlock the car, when I get close to a locked car and also when I open the doors. They are in sync with the interior dome light.
