Hi Brian and welcome to the forum.

I'm sure I've heard of this lights on after ignition off before. Maybe someone using the full-fat MHF could do an advanced search?

Did the lights go off with the ignition before? Until say the early 90s most cars and vans were not ignition dependent for lights. My 2004 MB Sprinter wasn't and I would often leave my headlights on dip in countries that required daylight driving lights. Twice I stopped for lunch and a kip and ran the battery flat. In the end I made the front fogs as ignition dependent DRLs.

Have you checked fuses re wipers, then try a multi meter (you will need one in a camper).
