Plus I noticed that the exhaust brake is on 100% of the time. Under the dash I found a wire with a push on connector that is labeled exhaust brake but not hooked up, is that ok ?

jake brakes have a separate isolation switch , that the operator can used to turn of the jake brake when that operation is not required
many vehicles have the jake brake connected to a switch/ sensor on the accelerator pedal or linkage to operate as you describe and the power for that switch/ sensor comes from the switch that I mentioned ,in the dash or steering wheel controls
A make and model of engine , vehicle would be a help but what I mentioned is basic to all models of operations

Why it sounds like it's jake braking when I lay off the throttle? The jake brake is not even switched on either?

Jake brakes are controlled by electro-mechanical solenoids that are screwed in the Jake housings on top of the camshafts and rocker arms. Oil passes through these solenoids when they are switched on, and oil pressure is what opens your exhaust valves up to use the engine as a brake. Sounds like you have one or more of these solenoids that are stuck on, letting oil by all the time. Another thing could be a bad Jake Brake On/Off switch, letting power by even if it's off... (doubt that would be it though, but it could be)

Brake light switch

In the 04 models there has been a recall on a part in the brake lights. You can look it up and it gives you a number to call GMC. If you truck is one of the affected models they will replace it for you.

The brake pads or rotors are worn or the tires could be worn.If you apply the brake and let off the steering wheel and the car pulls left or right i would suspect the brakes/pads,if not you may have an suspension issue in the front.

Yes, they do like to prematurely blow head gaskets. They have problems with the fuel pumps. They also have issues with prematurely wearing out hub assemblies.
