I was also under the impression that even though maybe one of the doors is not locking as you mentioned the lights should eventually go off they should not stay on or one door being left unlocked should NOT drain the battery ??

Yep correct it should not drain if car is unlocked, another indication of a faulty glove box lid is the rear windows/locks isolater switch indicated in my Pic getting hot, I'm not sure if it is fitted in your model.

I think your problem is the glove box lid
