Confused on Front Brake Pad Sensor

I did my rear brakes awhile back and I'm starting on planning for the fronts. I was checking out what I believe is the front brake pad sensor (passenger front wheel) and my sensor looks totally different than what it is supposed to look like. Mine screws in via an Allen wrench screw on the back of the brake housing as opposed to clipping in between the pads and rotors like the back. Any ideas where I am going wrong?

I believe that you're looking at the wheel speed sensor, associated with the ABS.

The front wear sensor is on the left wheel (driver's side for LHD.) The rear is on the Right (passenger) side.
