Headlight/Turn Signal Issue

I have a 2014 Jeep Patriot. When I use my turn signal, the headlamp on that side goes out. This only happens during the day with the driving lights, not when I actually turn on the lights at night.

This seems to be a common behavior with many vehicles these days. My GC does the same thing. This is especially true of vehicles with led daytime running lights.

It's operating as designed.

How 'bout it's designed to do that? or It's doing what it's supposed to do?
I believe it's because of a safety regulation, but I don't know for sure and I can't quote it. Something to do with it makes the turn signal easier to see. It's the DLRs only, not the headlamps.
