Minis have custom wiring looms for each car, so it is quite possible that if your car wasn't built with folding mirrors, it won't have the wiring for them either, so that would have to be made up and added.
I believe the folding mirrors are controlled only from the interior armrest knob - certainly there is no option to program them to auto-fold on locking as exists on some other makes.
