My wife's Trek e-bike came with an always-on headlight, but there was a dealer-accessible setting to allow it to be turned off and on from the controller. She never rides on streets or at night so just leaves it off.
No, not true. My head and taillight can be turned off by pushing the light button. It does turn on each time the bike is turned on, but then you can turn off the lights.

You ought to go see one in person and not use the internet as your deciding factors.
