In R, they will both illuminate.
But I was at a complete stop. I honestly did not take note of what position the steering wheel was in.

coming from an x5 whenever my steering wheel is turned a certain direction, let's say left, the left fog light would turn on to sort of illuminate the ground to the left some more. same with the right
Wow, I knew I had adaptive headlights but I had no clue that the fogs do that as well

I never noticed, I guess I never parked if front of glass doors to notice until now.

EDIT: Note that the picture above I posted is my car sitting in my driveway, in Park and the wheels are straight, so wouldnt that rule out the cornering adapive fog part out?
Easy test - did you make a right turn into your driveway?
