LED tail lights stay partically lit

I can't quite make sense of this. Last week I put new LED tail lights in my '32 pickup. Tonight, when I shut down the garage lights, I noticed that the tail lights were glowing slightly...through the lens it looks like an LED bulb or two is lit on the top of the array and another bulb or two on the bottom of the array. And it's approximately the same in both the left and right tail lights.

I was too beat to pull the lenses or tackle the problem tonight so I just detached the battery neg. Any ideas what might cause such a thing? I can start putting my tester on the various circuits tomorrow, but if someone has had this happen or has a great idea what the culprit might be I'd appreciate the input before I start tearing things apart.
