IAC ( Idle Air Control) Valve in 2003 MDX?

Is there an IAC valve in the 2003 MDX?
I was assuming there was, and I've been looking at all the diagrams in the shop manual and at the online parts sites, like this one: THROTTLE BODY (2) for 2003 ACURA MDX

And I can't see the IAC or rotary valve or whatever Acura is calling it

I did find it for earlier MDX's - and it's clearly shown in those diagrams. Here's the link to the parts diagram for a 2002: THROTTLE BODY (1) for 2002 ACURA MDX

So, did the IAC go away for the 2003 MDX?
I feel like I'm missing something silly here.

There isn't one in the 2003 and newer engine. The electronically controlled throttle body assembly does what the old IAC valve did.

I will NOT answer requests for radio/navigation unlock codes, so please don't ask.
