Even if you don’t have adaptive shadow technology, due to the way the LED lights are set they will not dazzle they have a sharp cut off beam. So there is no setting for left or right hand drive. If you go onto Volvo forums.org there are guite a few posts about this pertaining to the xc60 and 90 which have the same lights if you don’t have AST.

Just had confirmation from my dealer’s technical guru that this is so for the XC40 - so long as you don’t flick on the Active Main Beam feature.

Here in the NL I heard from my dealer today (he was informed by the main NL Volvo dealer about this) that no specific setting is needed while driving in the UK, the xenon lights are autonatically adjusted through the City Safety system camera. That is why there is no specific setting in the middle console...

We took delivery of our black inscription T4 today and are driving to France in Tuesday so this info will be handy.
