Question Does your brake light work with key off?

We bought an 06 Focus wagon about a month ago and I noticed a few days ago that the brake light does not come on with the key off. Works fine with key on.I checked a new Focus at dealer and it didn't come on either. My Impala brake light comes on without the key on, and I checked a FordF150 and it works without key.A Silverado I owned worked without key.

Is this normal for a Focus or a defect?

I am in US(Missouri).
