When the sun is low in the sky, i.e early morning or early evening - then whilst it may be sunny, because the angle of the sun is too low there isn't as much light falling on the windscreen sensor as you might think.Hence the lights either come on or stay on.
Our old Pug 206 was particularly troublesome in the twilight hours /winter when the sun was low in the sky.
The only time our lights seem to take longer to switch off is in these type of conditions.

Or as Chris has said - make sure the sensor area is clean.
