That's not normal, and certainly doesn't happen in mine. Mine is a 2014 and even if I intentionally turn the interior lights on (switch to on, not door), they turn off after a few minutes. They've been discontinued, but the Die Hard Platinum batteries are among the best you can get. If there are still some on the shelf at Sears then grab one!
