The "Cabin Light" switch at the helm on my 280 turns on the light for the steps into the cabin.

Your 342 has rope lighting controlled by two switches - one at the helm, one at the breaker panel in the cabin. The lights are not bright, so you might not notice them during the day.
Could be wrong but I think most are wired through the accessory side of the ignition switch so you don't leave the boat and leave a light on and kill your batteries. For those of us that leave the house battery switch on for fridges etc.

Yeah, this is to replace the incandescent string inside so don't want too bright - nor colored. I've been through the disco era, don't need it on my boat
