Engine bay insulation recall

Did that recall thing a few months ago, and I'm slightly confused. Was checking my oil like normal and saw that the insulation matt on the engine cover was deteriorating, is this NOT the part that was supposed to be replaced? Photo attached.

No, the insulation in the engine compartment was replaced. You're on your own for the engine cover pad in the photo.
