Hello and welcome. I'd look at the ignition switch. It could be worn enough that even though the key is in the OFF position there may be enough play in it that the contacts inside are still closed. You could see what happens by going a little past and to the left of off then back to it when you take your key out. Normally the headlight will stay on if you shut off the engine with the kill switch and will remain on until you turn off the key. Won't come back on again until the starter circuit is activated.
You said you found it this way? So you came home by other means to find the lights on when you know they were off earlier, or you came home from a ride to find that the lights wouldn't shut off?
