IIRC those are GM trannys.

Hyundai/Kia also have them, that I know of. My 2019 Silverado 10 speed is also a sealed unit. It's just a matter of time before it's the industry standard. But there are already aftermarket dipstick kits available.

I recall wondering why sometimes they were reversed when fueling one day and then observed that the controls on the pump that I was standing at was a mirror image of the other side of the pump. E. g. On my side the regular was on the right but on the other side the regular was on the left. I reasoned that they designed it that way to simplify the routing of pipes not to try to dup the customer.
