The ballast on the drivers side is only a couple of months old so that could be a factor as to why it's not so sensitive to a voltage drop.

I'm sure the passenger side light didn't used to go out as I remember putting the headlights on before the ignition on a couple of occasions a while ago to make sure that the self leveling of the lights was working....I would have noticed the light going out when I started the engine....but maybe I didn't start the engine....I can't say for sure.

Regarding the battery....I'll connect a jump start pack to the battery tomorrow & then see if the light still goes out whilst starting.
