Question Broken "Engine Compartment Seal"

I have a 2007 4.8i, but I think this applies to any E70: under the hood at the back of the engine compartment there's a gasket/seal mounted on a long strip of plastic that runs across the width of the engine compartment in front of the firewall right under (touching) the hood. It appears to have been screwed in to the plastic left and right "engine compartment bulkheads" near the middle of the vehicle, but the mounting tabs on mine rotted away and I found the seal just laying on top of the engine the other day. Questions:

- Has anyone else seen this?
- Am I correct in thinking that the CPO extended warranty won't cover this?
- There's a 2011 recall that is related to this part, but it doesn't sound like it my issue, is that correct?
