Hello and thank you for your question!My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. Please give me a moment to type my response. Thanks
Normally I am totally an advocate for the customer, but in this case it is more then likely not related to the repair they did on your car. IF the light stopped working the day you picked the car up, then I would say there is some potential there, but if it wasn't immediately then it's likely not related.
I suspect either the light itself has failed or it's also possible the wiring from the body out to the trunk has gotten pinched or broken.

Sorry, I misunderstood!!
Ok, I just took a look at the actuator repair procedure. Other then removing the inner covers, there's nothing near the light itself that should have caused this problem. However, I cannot say that they followed exact procedure and it does seem odd that it would happen after you had work done on the trunk area of the car.
Biggest problem is I am not sure how you would go about proving it was actually caused by the work they did. Again, I can confirm only that the third light should not have to be removed to replace the trunk lock actuator.
I'm sorry for the delay in my response and also sorry I misunderstood what had actually happened here.
