Tailgate opening (non Virtual Pedal)

Quick question to owners without the VP option on the tailgate.
Does the car still have the tailgate release button on the dash (between passenger airbag and hazards)? and does the tailgate open fully when released or just unlock (needing to be manually pulled open)?
I know that it wont close automatically but not sure whether it opens.

Thanks.

Must be one of those country-specific options again. Here in Finland, you can get electric tailgate with or without virtual pedal for the Style (middle trim level) and FR. If you choose virtual pedal version, you get KESSY too.

Yes I have the foot wiggle option and the button on the dash which does open the boot fully along with a few beeps, the same as the button on the key fob
