2011 F10 - no emergency trunk release

My trunk started closing with a thud, so I thought this was due to a failing lock. As I didn't want to risk it, I got an almost new lock off eBay which came with a bowden cable. The change was straightforward though, these expanding rivets are a PITA. Here's the thing though, it seems my old lock didn't come with an emergency trunk release! Instead of a bowden cable I had this:

Just a piece of fabric which doesn't connect to anything... I thought all F10/F11s came with an emergency trunk release...?

Btw, the new lock didn't fix the thud, next steps are the dampeners, I guess.
