New Aftermarket Headlights Question

I'm replacing my bad aftermarket lights with some better aftermarket lights. They are plug and play, but they have a plug I don't know how to use. It's a small whiteb plug in a housing that goes nowhere in my 2008 328i.
Can I just snip the wires and seal them off? Or should I just leave the plug hanging?

E90/92?

Could you get pics that better show the location?

The plug I remember most closely resembles one that control the adaptive headlights on the e92

That looks like the connector for one of the AHS motors. Here are 3 pictures. Your connector shown has 5 pins. I found the same 5 pin connector on one of my internal headlight harnesses. I have a side project going so I have lots of parts out on my work table.

Pic 1 is the 5 pin connector.
Pic 2 is the connector mater to the motor.
Pic 3 is the motor by itself.
