2015 GTS windshield wiper question

I was looking over the newly install clear wrap on my car and noticed the exposed windshield wiper Large Nut holding the arm. To me there should be a black plastic cap covering the Large Nut but. It sure if that’s how it was designed? Can other GTS folks check? See photos.
If it does not come with a cap I have the luxury of 3D printing one or two.

Mine is a 2013, but they do have black caps ( feels like a rubberized plastic material ) on them.

Thanks. I’ll have to see if they sell them or make them myself. Fun with a 3D printer!

I bought replacements from Scuderiaparts.com

15811787 Protective Cap

It's like a $1, but the shipping is a killer. I bought air and cabin filters and some other miscellaneous parts so it worked out for me. If you're just buying the cap, you're better off 3D printing one out of TPU material. PLA is going to be too stiff. I actually found a rubber bumper from the local hardware store that sort of fit, but opted to buy the OEM part since I was already getting some other parts.

Thank you!
Maybe 3D print with the Trident on top of the cap?!
