The brake controller may be wired directly to the brake light switch, but the trailer brakes are not. They are activated by current from the controller. They run off a different pin and different wiring than the brake lights. Sending current to activate the brakes by using the manual lever does NOT send current to the brake lights. At least not with my controller.
