The cali was a 2010 5.1 post facelift.
My question is the borrowed cali in new zealand control panel stayed lit up 24/7 is this normal for this model?
I have a 2010 T5.1. My first display lit up from the moment you turned it on. After a couple of seconds, the backlight turned down, but the display was still lit up. This was annoying when sleeping downstairs.
When the rotary knob broke down on me, I bought a second hand display with index C. This display goes black after a couple of seconds and is much better for sleeping downstairs, but not for looking at it while driving or when stationary.

So to answer your question: yes, it's normal.
