LED Fog Lights Flicker when Not On?

Swapped out some bulbs for LEDs and noticed that the LED fog lights slightly flicker when the car is running even if they're not switched on. Otherwise they work just fine when they're actually supposed to be on.

I've switched everything in BimmerCode to LED where applicable, as well as disabled both warm & cold monitoring.

Logic would say that if the bulb is flickering, the car is doing something to make it happen, so I'd have to assume the bulb is fine, and it's a setting I've missed. But where?

Anyone else familiar with this particular odd behavior?

Mine were flickering before I coded them with E-sys. Not sure whet you need to do in BimmerCode though.

In E-sys you need to do the following:

Right projector:
Code:
FEM_BODY > 3061 > NSW_R_KALTUEBERWACHUNG > nicht_aktiv
FEM_BODY > 3061 > NSW_R_WARMUEBERWACHUNG > nicht_aktiv
FEM_BODY > 3061 > NSW_R_IS_LED > aktiv
FEM_BODY > 3061 > NSW_R_UE_SPG_SCHUTZ > nicht_aktiv
FEM_BODY > 3062 > MAPPING_ABBIEGEL_R_PWM_LEVEL_1 > 100%
FEM_BODY > 3063 > MAPPING_NEBELSCHW_R_PWM_LEVEL_1 > 100%

Left projector:

Code:
FEM_BODY > 3061 > NSW_L_KALTUEBERWACHUNG > nicht_aktiv
FEM_BODY > 3061 > NSW_L_WARMUEBERWACHUNG > nicht_aktiv
FEM_BODY > 3061 > NSW_L_IS_LED > aktiv
FEM_BODY > 3061 > NSW_L_UE_SPG_SCHUTZ > nicht_aktiv
FEM_BODY > 3062 > MAPPING_ABBIEGEL_L_PWM_LEVEL_1 > 100%
FEM_BODY > 3063 > MAPPING_NEBELSCHW_L_PWM_LEVEL_1 > 100%
