Missing CRANK position sensor!?

'98, build date 01/98 528i stick.

started pulling the fan shroud etc off this morning, in order to do my VANOS seals BUT, 10 minutes in, discovered the molded ,metal ring/hoop/"bracket" which, I assume, is designed to accept the CRANK position sensor, is there, BUT the sensor itself is AWOL. Not even any apparent floating wires or plugs????

Should it be there OR is this a redundant bracket as the sensor is elsewhere or am I actually missing the sensor. Can't believe it would be running if it's actually not there!

Have had the car for 4 years/82,000 miles and have never been anywhere near the CPS, or should I say the empty bracket!

Any help would certainly be appreciated, thanks.
