I purchased a new trunk latch and installed it. Trunk light now works, so the mystery is solved. There is a micro-switch inside the latch.
So, I suppose, the order of trouble shooting a bad trunk light is: check bulb, check fuse, check or replace lock latch and finally look for damaged wiring or contacts.

Purchased? Shouldn't that be covered under warranty?

I bought car with 27,000 miles back in Oct. 2018. I don't know that it would be covered by the 10 year warranty. Anyways, the part cost $16. on Ebay. Could have bought it for less from overseas.
