Actually, there is a whole section on these in the manual. For the mirrors, it is the very first section in "Understanding the features of your vehicle" Right after all the safety stuff. Starts around page 93 for 2011-2012. Around page 126 for 2013-2015.
And yes, it answers the question about the driver's door mirror dimming. (Ctrl+F is your best friend when searching the manuals)
