I have it on my car the lights are cute, but certainly not worth $1k. I'd rather have parking sensors. Heck, I'd rather have the red piping on the seats, at least those get noticed every day. Or I'd rather have a $1k discount on the car. The lights should have stayed with the tech package or just been standard on every MS, seems so silly to price it out separately. I'd never miss it.
This used to be base model stuff for what it's worth. I have a non-tech 60 and I have them (was pleasantly surprised on delivery that I had them actually). If you've got 1k to burn, they are nice, but I probably would not have added them personally.

I have the Euro-package(?) lights on my P85+ with Tech Package delivered on 8/29 in WA, USA. I also had 5.0 installed at delivery.
Honestly, I never even noticed the strip lights under the door armrests, nor the puddle lights under the front seats lighting the rear passengers' feet. They are so dim.
On a sidenote, my car was originally scheduled for delivery in mid-August (priced in Late July, just before the ala carte price change took effect), but delivery was delayed for "the Norwegian Rollout", according to my DS. I think I was upgraded to the new stuff as a result! I have the lighting, the vented defrost, and the plastic lower B-pillar furniture. I also have the turn-light lighting, but not the fog lights. The turn-lighting is very nice, and bright enough for what it does.
Oh, and to answer your question: The door and puddle lights turn on when the doors are opened.
