Just saw this. Be very cautious when you pull your mirrors as myself and a couple others have broken them. It was probably my third or fourth time pulling them before I broke one, but I was in a rush and became complacent.

None of mine were LED from the factory. Also, double-check their operation before reinstalling the mirror as there has been polarity issues...

Here's a good video on how to change your puddle lights without having to remove your mirror.

Is the LED for the puddle lamp as bright as the incandescent?

I broke a mirror putting it back in...

Pushed a bit too hard waiting for it to "snap in". It cracked right in the middle.

The puddle lamp is the light on the bottom of the mirror of SEL and Titanium winter package equipped 2012 models, as well as the 2013 Titanium and ST to distinguish between these and the base SE models with the turn signal mirrors.

They are located on the bottom of the mirror housing.
