2012 Jeep fasteners missing

So after finding some scratches and a small paint chip on the JKU I picked up yesterday, I decided to look for other issues. Whomever they use for a detailer sure didn't do a very good job. Anyway, while removing the hard top (in order to get the soft top out of there...talk about a pain), I noticed that the front left bolt was missing that holds that corner of the hard top in place. Under the front seats it also looks like a fasteners that hold the carpet in place are missing. I have attached a pic to where you can see a grey plastic faster that the carpet slips over (hole in the carpet) but it looks like there should be another piece of plastic that pushes into that fastener. Can someone else take a look at their new JKU to see if theres is the same or different?

Those are supposed to help keep the carpet from flying out of the Jeep when topless
Crowded elevators smell different to midgets.
