I noticed on my 2010 E-Niro 4 that only the nearside reversing light illuminates. Is the other one just a dummy to maintain symmetry or if not how do you change the bulb and is it an LED or normal bulb.

Some have reversing lights on both sides, you may be able to peer in thru the lens and see if a bulb holder is installed.
If you find the reverse light a bit weak, then it should be possible to get the other one working, either at a dealer or independent electrician.
Any required original parts such as bulb holder may cost a bit.

On my Niro 2 the other side has a plain glass so it looks like a reversing light but it has a red bulb inside which is the fog lamp. It confused me at first and I had it booked in to be looked at. Then I read the manual and much to my surprise was able to find out that it was a fog lamp. I think that is the first time a Kia manual has been of any use. I don't know why they bother to translate them, they would be just as useful in Korean.

I've not tested the foglight(s) yet, perhaps that might throw some light on the situation.

My January 2020 Niro has only one reversing light on the N/S. The offside one, although having a white lens, contains a red LED and is the rear fog light. The reversing light is also an LED, and, should either lamp fail, it would appear the whole unit has to be replaced. I cannot understand why Kia did not change the design of the lamp housing to accommodate both reversing and rear fog lights on both sides. Like the single-bulb headlights which switches a mask in and out for dip/full beam, it seems penny-pinching.
