If you have no front license plate requirement in your state -- and as I recall NC is rear-only -- you need to insist, and by that I mean INSIST, that they do NOT drill the front bumper cover and install the bracket so they stick on an advertising tag.
Don't tell your salesman your wishes and count on them being relayed to the guys who will actually prep the vehicle. You need to talk to whoever is in charge of that process and be a bit of a pest. A firm but polite pest, of course: you want them to work with you, so don't tick them off. But you've got to do whatever it takes to make sure they don't go on autopilot and treat your car like every other that comes off the truck.
