Cisco WS-C6506-E Ethernet Module LED Mode

We have a Cisco WS-C6506-E with a couple of CEF720 10/100/1000 Ethernet modules installed.

The "Status" LED's on the modules seem to be showing the Duplex setting of the port and not Link status.
For example is a port is configured for 100Full,  however no device is connected to the port,  the LED is lit GREEN.

I know on some of the smaller Cisco switches,  there is a physical "Mode" button,  which changes the LEDs to display different status'.. like Link status, speed\duplex, etc., however the 6506 doesn't seem to have any button.

Would anyone be aware of any IOS commands or other way to change the LED  status on this hardware?

Thanks

The status LED's on the 6500 line cards aren't multifunction like on the 29xx and 3xxx series.

You are correct..  my issue is that I was counting the first light as the light for Gi1/1.
However this is not correct..  the first light is for module status.

Thanks so much for confirming
