I suspect its to illuminate the area to the left and right of the front wings of the car, so that when going backwards the front has a tendency to swing out wide. This way you can see how much room you have to the front left and front right of the car.
Must admit have not noticed an explanation either in the user guide or by the dealer. Mind you by then my eyes would have glazed over.

Something else to watch on the front foglights/cornering lights...........if you have headlights on when you use the indicators the corresponding front foglight comes on.........so..............

They come on when turning steering wheel in a corner and also come on when using indicators....................amazing what you find out when you are bored at traffic lights
