It senses the latch, not whether the lid is actually open. On my '14, if I "double pump" the trunk release (from outside), meaning I click it twice when opening it instead of just once like I should have, the latch "state" is now "open". The lid will be difficult to latch (but if you slam it hard enough it will latch), and the DIC will report trunk open even though it's not.

If the lid doesn't latch nice and easy when I attempt to close it, I click the release again while the lid is open, and then try and close it again and it always latches right up and the "trunk open" alert goes away...

Check the wires in the black plastic and mesh between the body and the decklid. Common place for wiring to go bad. Had to fix a license plate light wire there.
