In A320 logo light stays on until slats are retracted however A330 FCOM doesn't mention that slats position would affect logo light.

- ON - Logo lights are on.
- AUTO - Logo lights come on if aircraft on the ground or in flight with slats extended.
- OFF - Log lights are off.

So it seems. I'm guessing it's the latter one but I don't fly the A330 so I don't know how common it is to takeoff with flaps 3. And also I don't know what that "at least 15 degrees on some aircraft" remark actually means, maybe it can also be something else.
