Also, I have seen where a dual filament bulb (parking and brake light in one bulb) can be inserted 180 degrees out of phase in the socket. This will cause brake lights to come on when the parking lights / headlamps are on, and cause the parking lamps to come on when the brake pedal circuit is activated. If you have recently replaced the bulbs, you might want to take the bulbs out and turn them half a turn before inserting to see if that may be the issue.
