Did Joe Biden Rig the White House So Trump's Staff Couldn't Turn on the Lights?

One of the best bits in the NYTimes profile this weekend of the first two weeks of the Trump Administration is this passage, where we learn that the White House staff is literally working in the dark:

Aides confer in the dark because they cannot figure out how to operate the light switches in the cabinet room. Visitors conclude their meetings and then wander around, testing doorknobs until finding one that leads to an exit.

Is there not, like, a White House manager or something that could explain it to them? Did they fire the old maintenance staff? Is there not a manual somewhere with instructions on how to turn on the lights (“To turn on lights, flip the light switch located near the door’s entrance.”) Or maybe, as some on Twitter are suggesting, this was Joe Biden’s parting gift to the Trump Administration: He disabled all the lights.
