The park lights have power available without the need for the ignition to be on. Likely to be a faulty light switch, although you could also have power getting onto that circuit from another power source if you've got poor wire insulation with crossed wires. If you disconnect the power wire to the light switch & the lights stay on then you know it's a crossed wire somewhere.

You've proven the power source is the switch, the problem is it's not behaving as a switch. There's nothing wrong with the wiring to the globes, they're functioning correctly, the only barrier to the electrical load provided by the globes is supposed to be the switch.There should be no power out on any of the output pins when the switch is off but you have power out on the park circuit.

if he's not supposed to have power but he does, even after two different switches, would that mean somehow it's:
  • wired up in reverse after the switch?
  • the grounding is reversed from the lights back to the battery?
Nah because it's a switch, there should be no power out to anything when it's off. If the switch itself has been wired incorrectly, who knows what might be happening.
