Headlight differences in 05-09 mustangs?

So a couple months ago I was visiting the in-laws who own a 2005 v6 vert. Upon inspecting their headlights, I noticed that they were different than mine. Both of our cars have factory headlights. I noticed that theirs had a plastic chrome bulb in front of the headlight bulb inside the housing. Also that their lens displays a ford part number at the bottom. To compare, I found a picture of one online.
And here is a picture of mine.
So did ford change their manufacturing on the headlights in later years or what?

If your headlight was factory it should have a part number on it. Mines a 05 as well and looks just like the first pic. Part number on the bottom of the lens as well.

I'm not saying it was aliens...but it was aliens.

That's what I'm saying though. There's no part number on the lens, and there's no plastic bulb over the light bulb. But everything else is identical. So I'm thinking Ford changed the manufacturing? Because yours is an 05 just like my in-laws. So that makes sense. Maybe some later year guys will chime in.
