"The taillight on function is the "park" setting on the ignition switch..which allows you to lock the steering , remove the key but leave the ""parking lights" on."
Is this the only real difference?
Yup. This is designed for you to momentarily pull over on the side of the road for whatever reason, say you needed to check your tires or re-secure something you tied to the rear rack for instance, and keep your tail light on for safety (visibility to upcoming traffic). The headlight does not shine, to save on your battery. If you want the headlight to shine you need to leave the bike running.
I've never used the PARK function. I would be more afraid of leaving in PARK and draining my battery. However, I have an LED board for my tail/brake light and I could probably leave it on overnight and not drain the battery. NOT going to test that out, though!
