No idea where about this value is in FRM3, shouldn't be too hard to find it.
Can you please tell us which value it is for the welcome light length and welcome light AE brightness?
I got it. It's WL_DAUER and brightness equals the settings of parking light brightness.

Any idea what FKT or TFL means?
I don't know exactly what the difference between 1 and 2 is but sincle I am from germany I can help you translate the cryptic letters.

BL = Braking Lights ("Bremslicht") (these often are AE undimmed - so the abbreviation in fact is misleading
SL = most likely parking light ("Standlicht") (AE dimmed)
FKT = most likely refers to the FUNKTION DE or FUNCTION ENG as which the light is being used. E.g.: NSL_FKT_SL is the fog lights when being used as parking light.
TFL = daytime running light (AE bright)

In germany we differ between Parklicht (PARKL) and Standlicht (SL). Both is to be used when the vehicle is stationary in germany. The Parklicht in fact is the Standlicht when only activated either on the left or the right side of the vehicle. Technically, as you know, it looks the same except that one side is dark

AL = low beams (Abblendlicht)
FL = high beams (Fernlicht)
WL = welcome lights (Welcome Light, no german here)
SL = parking lights (Difference between 1 and 2 is front and back) Standlicht in GER
NSW = fog lights (Nebelscheinwerfer)
POL = corner led (pretty sure)
KZL = license plate LED Kennzeichenleuchte
FRA = ambient light? could be "Fu▀raumausleuchtung" - ambient light in the inside on the ground where your feet are
TFL = daytime running lights Tagfahrlicht
NSL = rear fog lights Nebelschlussleuchte

Is this the brightness settings for the AE when using as DRL (PWM_SL_1_FKT_BL_TFL) and when using parking light (PWM_SL_1_FKT_PARKL)?
