AFAIK, these are just for turn signals.

It depends on which BMW market you're in. Some markets...the amber bulbs or lens in the front are only for turn indication. In other markets...those bulbs come on as parking lamps (headlight switch's 1st click clockwise turns them on)....and for turn indicators.

If you don't see a selection for this under the LCM module coding...you may need to look at ZKE or IKE coding. (I'm guessing because I don't have any of this type of software...but there seems to be small pieces of info in my mind that I've seen something about it before).

EDIT: just did a quick google search for BMW LCM coding and saw this screen capture of PA soft...look on the far right upper column for front turn signal options. Unfortunately...this is not the software you say you have

When it comes to simple changes like this, PA Soft is the best and super cheap on eBay. Search: bmw scanner 1.4
