have a 2011 Sorento K2. When I have the radio and headlights on they don't switch off when I turn off the ignition. Is this correct?

On some cars, yes it's correct. The radio at least should turn off when the key is turned from acc to off.
The lights should either go off, or a chime should be heard, possibly only after opening the door.

On my Sportage the radio does not go off until the driver's door is opened. Dunno about headlights - I always switch them off manually although there is a setting to delay the off again when driver's door is opened.

On my car the radio stays on until the drivers door is opened, at which point it switches off. I leave the headlights in auto mode, if the are on they go off after about half a minute after the car is locked, however if I lock the car on the fob button and then press the button a second time they go off. The car does the same if you have switched the headlights on manually. I believe it is called the headlight escort facility and it is meant to assist you when leaving the car in dark locations.

Edit: If you leave the lights in auto or manual on they will light up when you unlock the car with the fob, but they switch off when you open the door.
