Does your SiriusXM Radio Ground Plate Look Like This

I ordered a new SiriusXM Radio Antennae ground plate from Newmar. I was expecting a 3-inch square metal plate. Instead I received a 3-inch metal plate with 4 holes. I am wondering if I have the correct part. Does your ground plate have holes?

This mounting plate for the SiriusXM Radio Antennae tends to rust and the 4 holes would serve to create more potential for rust.

It's likely a generic part. Used in many applications.

This is the same plate that is installed on my 2016 CS. My impression of the plate is it provides a metal surface for the SiriusXM antenna to attach - since it is magnetic. So I don't think its really a grounding plate. I lifted mine and resealed when I serviced the roof. When reattaching I did not screw it down - just used Dircor adhesive sealant to hold it down. No screws. Hope the comments help
