Brake pad ears?

These pads are sold by a Porsche dealer as OEM. I thought OEM was the Textar or Galfer pads that don't have the circular ears on them.

What's up?

Textar, Galfer (Brembo) or Pagid are all OEM pads.

Not sure what these are, maybe Galfer. What if any other markings on them?

At least 1 other dealer is selling the same pads as OEM, but for Base Model '05+:

Under the description in that Suncoast Porsche link it says the picture is a file photo. So they might not actually look like that.
