Sensa tech upholstery vs Olyster Dakota Leather

Would anyone be able to tell me a way to tell if my car (2017 BMW x1x) has the sensa tech upholstery or the Oyster Dakota Leather upholstery? Yes I know, its a really dumb question but,
I ask because the window sticker on my car says "sensa- tech", yet the vehicle inquiry sheet that the salesman emailed to me before I bought the car, lists the upholstery as Oyster Dakota Leather, which is also what the price I paid for the car, was based upon.
I was always curious about this, I have never had leather seats before, so I can't tell if the car actually HAS leather seats. I know I paid for leather seats.. now I am wondering if what I really have, is the sensa-tech
Thanks,

Decode the VIN? The sticker is likely what your car has.

Because it's wrong?

SensaTec is only offered in black and beige, so if your interior is Oyster it cannot be SensaTec. It's Dakota leather.

Perhaps you are looking at the section of the window sticker that lists the standard equipment. On another section of the sticker it lists the options. So -- standard is Sensatec but that is upgraded to optional leather.
