    They are as ed says, surface mount leds not light bulbs illuminating the light switch. The vectra b had light bulbs to illuminate it's switches, but leds are used now as they have a longer lifespan and are more reliable (usually) compared to a filiment light bulb. They also require less power to illuminate
