What exactly is illuminating this rogue planet and some of its moons?

Imgur Thread for above images

The planet and its 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th moons are lit as if they're orbiting a star instead of wandering. The first moon is lit solely through tidal heating, and the rest are completely dark, so is this a lighting error or is there something more to it?

ChaosMageX, I wanted to go to the system that you have found, I am in and he says he was not found.
I think it is procedural, I'm sure I copied the system RS 8474-1792-8-8547729-1256.

Its tidal heating, but you probably have real planet brightness off, hence why it looks brighter from what it should
The closest planet behaves as the light source for the rest of the system
