Blue Sphere Magic Lights not lightable

There's one blue sphere magic light outside the crown room in the ruined tower, it has a dialogue box that explains how those lamps work, i.e. hit them with any magical damage and they light up. That's great, the only problem is, there are several of those blue spheres in the crown room itself, and I couldn't target any one of them. Lighting those up to provide light in that room would have been extremely advantageous in the combat, but I tried to target them with my wizard's Firebolt cantrip, and they were not clickable. It appeared as though all those blue sphere lights were just dungeon dressing, and weren't actually created to be interact-able objects.

I was not able to light the one outside the room prior to the combat despite trying with three cantrips. During the combat the room was lit so I didn't bother. After the combat I decided to try and was able to light the one outside the room and the two inside on the wall but not the four surrounding the crown plinth, which appear to be untargetable dungeon dressing.

Interesting. That room gave me fits because it appeared to be brightly lit throughout, but when I actually targeted some of the Sorak's with ranged attacks, it said I was going to be at disadvantage because they were either "unlit" or "dimly lit." That's why I kept trying to target the blue spheres to light them up, unfortunately to no avail. Not sure if the bright light shining down on the plinth was just "flavor" light, or what? Thanks for the info about your results there.
