I understand your concern, but I have had no issues tucking up the connector (with a cap) into one of the grill rear pockets, it stays there nice and very discrete.
I doubt if there is a live lamp feed ala RR, those Germans are of the opinion nothing would ever dare fail. I had recently assumed the same as you, but there was a recent thread here where an owners treg was totally dead and non responsive to the emergency key. Odd, but apparently true. So....
Mind you, I also have a spare key and fob hidden and isolated on my '12. VW said it couldn't be done but it can. 😎
2012 Touareg TDI ("Badger"), Highline with sport and towing pkg., Canyon Grey/Black. Awesome.
1984 Toyota Landcruiser BJ60 ("Huntley"), Blue/Brown, 3B diesel, manual everything, daily driver for the past 27 years and 454,000km. Priceless.
Dog is my co-pilot.
