That's how '06 models with DRLs behave.
The small bulbs are the front parking lamps, (I'll add some trivia about that below).
I'm not sure of the wiring, as I've yet to see an '06 diagram, but unless your dealer somehow tapped into the wiring for the DRLs to switch on the HIDs, (which is very unlikely even practical), you should just have to follow the directions above to disable them. This will make the headlights behave like a "normal" car - you switch them on and off.
trivia: Not sure how things are now, but it used to be illegal to drive in populated areas in England with your headlamps on (think way back, early autos). Manufacturers fitted "pilot lights," which were what the small incandescent bulbs are. In a populated area, you were supposed to only run with the pilot light, which was just enough light to illuminate the reflector. I guess it stuck, and that's typical for European "parking lamps" today.
