He was giving you a folksy summation of the law, not a precise rendition. It's a virtual certainty that the statute requires all factory license lights to be working.

"i leave the truck running to go look at the license plate light."
No need to leave it running. Virtually all cars and light trucks have license lights, taillights, and parking lights that come on whether or not the ignition is on.
