That's normal if you have adaptive lighting. If you push the fog light button then both fog lights will be on. If you don't actually turn the fog lights on by pushing the button and you have automatic headlights turned on with the adaptive headlights only one fog light will turn on when you are in park.

According to the owners manual on page 82, "To avoid blinding on coming traffic the Adaptive Light Control directs light towards the front passenger side when the vehicle is at a stand still." And since the fog lights are turn on and off depending on the direction of the adaptive lights that is why you only see one light on when parked. If you started driving straight the light would go out and neither fog light would be on. The only way to have both fog lights on is do push the button.
