Low beam is the headlamp bulb operating in the "dipped" position.
What you have photographed is the light switch in the sidelight position.

That should just be the DRL's? Low beam is the dipped headlight?

EDITED to correct terminology

Please have a look at my updated/edited post above, more so about what the drls do when you turn on the fog lights

For your headlight switch.
O= DRL only
AUTO= Automatic switching from DRL during daylight to low/high beam with sidelight (DRL off) in darkness.
(> <) = Side lights (DRL off)
€> = low/high beam with side lights (DRL off)

Sorry about the symbols, it's the closest I can make to those on the switch using text.

DRL/Sidelight is a 21W/5W bulb, two in one.

0 = DRL on (21 W), everything else off.
Auto = DRL Off, Sidelights on (5 W), Dipped lights on
Sidelights = Sidelights on, DRL off, Dipped lights off
Dipped = Dipped lights on, Sidelights on (5W), DRL off

p.s. Doc posted the almost the same above

Are yours working ok or have you the same fault with DLR/side light function?

With low beam the DRL is on but the dimmer version (ie sidelight) and not full blown bright DRL

Don't know what's the internal wiring of the headlight, but should be relatively easy fix.

@Doc previously did you say this was normal or you think this is a fault?
