The puddle lights work with the interior light and are timed in the same way as the interior light.
How the interior lights are controlled depends on thje age of the car. Early cars ( pre April 1997 ) have a timer integrated with the main instruments. After April 1997 this function together with loads of other stuff ( electric windows, central locking, boot light, heated rear window ) were integrated into a controller behind the glovebox.
Are you sure they're on permanently and not just on the timer?
