Launch Control knob LED feedback?

I am setting up a very straightforward Traktor mapping for my Launch Control XL, which I have just received. Very nice controller by the way, I plan to use it this Friday at a gig and I think it's going to be a lot of fun.

Now the problem: I have no issues getting the button LEDs to light up and have Traktor control the color etc, but what about the LEDs under the knobs?

The "Launch Control XL Editor" has an option labelled "LED MIDI Ch." for each knob, which kind of implies that these LEDs are writeable.

The programmer's reference PDF says these LEDs can be controlled using SysEx messages; unfortunately Traktor is very basic and does not support SysEx, so my question is can these LEDs be set in the same way as the button LEDs and if not can we expect a firmware update so that it is possible?
