question about electric brake controller

I just installed a electric brake controller in my WK2. I used the harness that came with my jeep when I bought it. and the harness from the controller as well. But what I noticed was when I turned my jeep off the contoller stayed on. Is this normal? I would think that it would be on a switched hot and not a constant hot wire direct to the battery. Also has anyone had issues with it draining the battery?
Thanks,

Mine stays on for a while too, then it shuts off. Hasn't ever been a problem. It does the same thing in my Ram truck, too. Bruce
