Nice catch... here is the explanation:
The lights inside the tray are on one circuit and are controlled by the
outside light switch.
The actual cigarrete lighter is on another circuit. This is the one that powers the rear outlets.
This one to work needs the keyfob in (the engine does not need to be on)

Both circuits are on the same wire hardness.
I hope that answers your question.
