It should be one click to the right on the headlight switch.

So in the pic, the switch is at 12 o'clock position,like pmpn8ez said one turn to the right which would be at the 1 o'clock position... you will have your park lights and angel eyes illuminated...also in this position you can turn on your fog lights as well..

Yeah, It's possible the previous owner had an issue and wired it differently. Maybe someone else can chime in with other things to check.

I believe the OP is seeing the DRL's, which are illuminated in the 1 o'clock position. So those ugly yellow lights throw off the cool LED halos. To disable the DRL's you need to take it to a BMW shop or get the proper software and cables and do it yourself.
