This really is a non-issue with the only impact being a safety benefit. I could understand if the auto headlights never turned off but does it really matter if the headlights stay on for an extra 10-15mins.

In my opinion it's great to be more visible.
They are not complaining that they are on just before dusk or dawn. The lights come on all different times...sometimes 12 noon, sometimes 2pm, 10 am, whenever they feel like it. I just keep mine off the auto setting and drive with the DRL (rings) on and switch over to headlights when needed.
