Rear Facing Fog Lights are not tail lights. They are rarely used in the USA, and I may be incorrect on this point but I believe they are actually illegal in many parts of the USA. And, yes, the wattage of a fog light is different than a tail light.
Only some euro brands like Audi, Mercedes (bmw refuses to include them in US bound cars) and some other manufactures include them.

People here can't even use high beams/front fog lights correctly!
