Default Bolt receiver lock standard equipment

Apologies for diving right in to an issue. Just bought an alleged NEW 2018 F150 Lariat two days ago with tow package and it came from dealer with a Bolt receiver lock keyed to the truck key. I've done some searching but find no reference to it as a Ford feature. Is this receiver lock standard equipment?

Picked my 2019 up today and no not standard equipment. Doesn't look as though a tow bar has ever been attached as no scratches inside the receiver so maybe the dealer did this to prevent a towing test drive

By the way welcome to the forum!

Thanks for the response. It seems the previous dealer adds the lock to every truck although pics from that dealer's listing do not show the lock. With some leather damage and paint scratches plus mud in the pedals I was worried truck had been previously registered. That lock wouldn't have prevented towing on test drive because its keyed to the truck key. The uselessness of the lock without the truck is what really concerned me. Anyway there was a new vehicle registration done according to province and dealer will fix all the cosmetics so I'm ok with everything now.

Some things I learned
New vehicle should have a NVIS form which disappeared to province upon registration: get a copy before it does.
Carfax should show previous owners
Trailer usage should be logged by computer on models that do that: my Lariat should have a record.
Just because it has big tow mirrors doesn't mean electronic brake controller is included
