SHould be automatic via GPS, when you get to France they will change on their own. It’s in the manual.

«If you have to drive a right-hand drive vehicle in a left-hand drive country, or vice versa, the dipped beam of vehicles with advanced main-beam control or dynamic cornering light may dazzle oncoming traffic Main-beam control (dynamic), Exterior drive lighting. For this reason, the headlight alignment of vehicles with this equipment can be adjusted in the Infotainment system in the Vehicle settings menu (travel mode) Vehicle settings menu. Adjustment of the headlights is not necessary on vehicles without advanced main-beam control and without dynamic cornering light.»

LED headlights = non advanced beam control

Mine adjusted automatically when we went to France.
They adjusted automatically when we came back to the UK.
BUT
Inexplicably they have now changed themselves back to adjusted for driving on the Right (i.e. wrong for the UK).

There is in theory an option to change the setting via the dreaded infotainment system: Vehicle screen: vehicle.
Unfortunately mine will not let me switch it back to driving on the Left.
I have eMailed VW.

My matrix headlights do not auto dip for oncoming vehicles. They dip if I come up behind a car, or enter street lit area.

My setting for driving left or right keeps flipping back to right, I have to set it to left — am in UK — but it will flip back to right a day or so later.

IIRC this is what used to happen to SWMBO in the Tiguan quite regularly:

*SWMBO sets «A» mode by pushing the stalk back once as soon as she starts the car. Drive.
*An oncoming forkwit flashes SWMBO because she has brighter headlights than them, and this somehow offends them.
*SWMBO flicks the stalk back to disengage A mode, but what this does in fact is set the full beam on.
*Oncoming forkwit puts their full beam on too, because the already «too bright» headlights are even brighter now.
*SWMBO flicks the stalk back again to dipped beam mode, and believes that the matrix lights aren’t working correctly, because if they were why would the forkwit have flashed you ?
*SWMBO then forgets she isn’t on matrix mode for the headlights, and again thinks the matrix lights aren’t working correctly
*Arrives at destination, cursing long-suffering hubby by text about the matrix lights not working in the car, then rinse/repeat on the journey home

I am expecting similar beratement when SWMBO ever manages to drive the Tour in the dark.
