While the car is stationary, ignition switch on (running or not), the test button is simply testing that the warning lights work...not the systems. With ignition off, it will light up part of the display for few seconds...clock and odometer. While driving, the button will call up more info for a genuine warning light that's on (if any).

Mpg or Lpk readout probably depends on the country the car was sold for. Only the menu button would give you that option if available. The choice was not available in past U.S. models.

Do you have the original owner's manual? They can be purchased...Bentley Publishers sells them for U.S. models. I'm sure they're available for other countries from other sources.
