DOT Corner lights?

Who makes dot approved corner lights? Smoked or Clear, with or without reflector does not matter.

There are grey areas, like when I bought German Hella-brand tails for my Jetta. The lenses were the OE parts used on Euro-spec GLI models and even though they could meet US DOT requirements, they had never been approved for use here so there was no "DOT" stamp molded in the plastic.

Oddly enough, the euro rears on my old sedan were stamped DOT even though they were never sold here
