3. Does the regen paddle trigger the brake lights as it slows the car (like an ordinary brake pedal would)?
Yes, brake lights do come on when the Bolt EV is using regenerative braking. This is not true of some other models, like the Volt, which doesn't have as intense braking effect when in 'L'...
Pretty much what gaulfinger wrote. I do have one more thing to add: the brake lights will turn OFF once you decelerate below a set amount of "Gs". Essentially, when you stop using either L or the paddle, the brake lights that were on will be off even though you're stopped. You can test this in a parking lot or quiet neighborhood street at night by observing the red brake lights reflecting off your rear window wiper. As you slow in L, the lights come on then when you finally coast to a stop, the lights turn off.
