Fog lamp additional function?

I was cleaning the car today and I happened to be cleaning the headlight switch. Twisted it CCW and right side markers turned on. But I pulled on it and the foglamps turned on! As if I could "flash" the fog lamps with this feature. I didn't get to try it with the engine on (see if that worked) so I was curious why the car has this feature?

Also, while we're on fog lamps: While we were searching for a TE back in Jan, we tested other cars for sale (TE also) and some of them had rear fog lamps, but ours doesn't. Or maybe it's just the bulb, but the bulb out lamp on the cluster doesn't light up if I activate it, so I would guess it didn't have this function.

I know in Europe it's standard to have rear fogs, how about in the US for the w124 chassis?

Ok, you guys are talking about the rear fog lights correct? Well if I am thinking the same thing dn't all W124's have them? I test drove a 93 coupe and when I was testing out the the lights I pulled the switch out 2 times and the rear fog lights were on. One of them were out but it was the first time I saw them.
Well I believe my 89 300 had them. No need to clarify the Owner's Manual shows how to do it actually :).
