I guarantee you the upper photo is just screwed into the cactus grey plastic below the grill. It's made to go that way.There are two factory front plate mounts... one for the steel modular bumper, and one for the plastic bumper.
Both are a plastic mounting bracket that screws into the trim below the grill. The plate is set in and attached to it.
If OP's dealership just screwed the plate directly into the trim, they did it wrong.
My dealer didn't install anything, came straight off the truck into my hot little hands.
