Vin Decoder Question

So I just traded in my Jeep for a new (to me) 2016 BMW 328i. It had several packages on it and I wanted to see what all that included. One of the items the decoder showed and that the dealer included on their site was heated seats (S494 - Seat Heating Driver/Passenger).

However, now that I am looking at it, there are no buttons for it. They are just two blank black pieces of plastic where they should be. Does this mean that the VIN was incorrect or that the buttons were just never inserted.

Thanks!

post VIN and/or photo of dash where buttons are. It should be a symbol of a seat with 3 stink lines coming off it and 3 little lights (low, med, high)
