    You probably have the over-ride switch turned on. From your manual:

    Dome Lamps
    The dome lamps come on when a door is opened.
    The dome lamps can also be turned on by
    turning the knob, located next to the exterior lamps
    control, clockwise to the farthest position. In this
    position, the dome lamps will remain on whether a
    door is opened or closed.

    Dome Lamp Override
    E(Dome Lamp Override): You can use the
    dome lamp override button, located next to
    the exterior lamps control, to set the dome lamps
    to come on automatically when a door is
    opened, or to remain off. To turn the lamps off,
    press the button in. With the button in this position,
    the dome lamps will remain off when the doors
    are open. To return the lamps to automatic
    operation, press the button again to return it to the
    extended position. With the button in this
    position, the dome lamps will come on when you
    open a door.
