Non Existant Trunk Light

I got a warning on my dash that both of my rear brake lights went out. The outside lights work fine. I went and opened up the trunk brake lights, and this is what I found. Is this normal? Did I just not notice these never actually had lights in them or what's up here? Thanks for any help. 01 330xi.

I think you may be looking at the reversing light there.

The brake lights are in the main panel along with the indicators.

Check the plug and socket on the main unit, you may find that the earth wire has burned out causing problems on the rear.
