Is sunroof control switch supposed to illuminate?

In the 7 months I've owned my 2003 XS, I 've noticed that there is no illumination for the overhead sunroof switch. As many bulbs were burned out when I bought it, I was wondering if there is supposed to be any illumination for this switch or not (It would be helpful to be able to quickly locate the switch at night if you need to close the sunroof because it's training, etc...).

@Boxer_Steve63 I'm going to say no illumination. I don't see any mention of it on the Subaru Technical service document: Clearance Light and Illumination Light System or Sunroof system - Wiring Diagram.

I don't recall ever seeing it illuminated on my '07 FSXT, but then, I never use the sun roof.

I was disappointed that bit wasn't illuminated. They have them all illuminated except it and the reset trip button.
