I have pointed this out to he dealer who have contacted Lexus to find out if it is a safety feature or a fault. Meanwhile as I use the cruise control regular I don't use the engine braking system and it works fine. Hope this helps.

Further update:- After further investigating I have discovered that when the engine braking system is used the cruise control can be reset by moving the shift lever back to drive position, this tells the ECU Unit that normal driving has resumed also the blue background dashboard light returns to indicate this. I have searched through the Owners manual but there is no mention of this.
