I have had sensors with a bad battery which needed replacement, or the wheels could have been sold without sensors.

Are the valve stems metal or rubber? If rubber, there are no TPMS installed...
They will be need to be programmed. it is the same situation if you were to replace one of the sensors on your current wheel setup. The "address" of that new tpms sensor would need to be programmed to the car so that it can speak to the car.
