2020 2SS - Sound tube delete from factory?

I was looking around at the 2020's popping up in dealer lots and noticed a couple didn't have sound tubes coming off the intake, but instead had a cap. Didn't know if it was a dealer thing, but then I saw pictures of chevyfan4life's and noticed his was the same. Narrowed it down to a 2ss thing and sure enough, all the dealer pics show the 1SS with it and 2SS capped. You can even see the firewall plug in the picture below. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is?

It looks like they stopped using the insulation piping on the built in AOS tubing as well...interesting.

It comes off the intake and pipes into the firewall. Suppose to amplify engine/intake sound. Ford refers to it as a sound symposer on the Focus and Fiesta. I think it's downright silly and removed it from my current car and was looking to remove it from the Camaro.

I would love to get that plug to replace my janky tube cover I'm using right now on my sound tube delete. Any ideas how it can be tracked down?

I used a plug commonly available in the parts/fastener section of many hardware stores. It is a very unobtrusive round black plug that looks stock!
