Not all "lighting" fixtures are made to model the light output, just the physical size and shape, so you would have to look at the family to see if it actually models a light source.

 

Lights that are recessed in the ceiling may not have the ability to cut the ciling and thus any light thay may habe modeling may be stuck above the ceiling.

 

In order for a light to show in a rendering, it has to be on in the render settings.

These are not lights - it is how materials interact with lights.   GOOD LUCK!
