No anode rod?

The water heater in our 2016 chaparral 360ibl came with just a plastic plug, no anode rod? I asked the dealer during PDI, and was told the new ones don't need anode rods due to some kind of lining in the tank...

I assume I am being fed some BS... Anyone ever hear of this? I may just put an anode rod in it....
