Can't get a good picture right now, but I'm sure the rectangular purple area is the rain sensor, and the small round light sensor in the rearview mirror doesn't have (or need) a lens in the windshield.

Not sure what the red dots are in my cell phone picture - had difficulty preventing the flash reflection from obscuring the picture.

I think the installer has to work carefully to successfully patch in a recycled or new rain sensor onto an aftermarket windshield.

A previous discussion may be of interest:
