Front plate @ delivery?

Curious... As I've now seen two different setups locally at dealerships..

For those of you in places that require front plates... Are your cars arriving at the dealership with the plate bracket pre installed? Or are your dealers installing them?

Are your rivets into the bumper itself, or into the black mesh grille?

Anyone in a front plate location, who's car came without a front bracket attached already?

One dealership had the bracket riveted into the black mesh area, and on had it riveted through the painted bumper area itself.

I have requested nothing to be attached to mine, but.... nobody has been able to tell me if they are coming pre attached from the factory or if it's being done in the dealership.

I'm looking at the window sticker I downloaded from Ford for the car I put a deposit on, and it lists under optional equipment 'Front License Plate Bracket' at no additional charge. Since the car is at a dealer in Arizona, I'm wondering if that means it's riveted to the car at the factory? Guess I'll email my sales rep and ask. Kinda dumb to deliver it that way since Arizona doesn't require front plates.
Yep, my dealer confirmed that my car has the factory installed front plate bracket. They offered to remove it if I liked, and I said yes, please. I still think it's crazy that they install these at the factory instead of at the dealer.
