My '02 has visable holes, even though it never came with the pads.

Perhaps they were no longer included is because LS1s don't have the fuel lines under there like LT1s?

I agree about shops and morons who jack in the wrong spot. I caught one shop who screwed my car up, and their insurance paid. Ripped the quarter panel. Sadly the repair shop MY insurance told me to go to employed shitty workers, and I still have that broken (with damage covered up) quarter panel. God bless America.

Thanks for sharing the image with part number! I remember checking mine for a part number years ago but wasn't able to find one, even using an inspection mirror, while it was still attached to the car.

I ran that part number through GMPD and it's not recognized at this point, no description even given, so it must've been discontinued long ago. The description you mentioned above says "1993 to 1997", but that's not entirely correct as my '98 car came stock with these. So they either changed the part number for '98, or that description just isn't completely accurate. FWIW, I remember some folks with very late '98 cars mentioning that theirs didn't come with these (and I seem to recall noticing this as well on ~05/98 or later '98 cars), so it seems to have been a soft cut-off somewhere near the end of 1998 model year. Maybe it was not an "official" part for '98, but the assembly line just kept using them until inventory was exhausted.

I saw the other day Detroit Speed makes these out of metal. My fender is already cracked on the bottom or maybe I would consider them.

Just ordered a set from Detroit Speed. My fender alignment is fine, but the tabs on both front fenders are pretty mangled, due to idiots not knowing where to put the jack/lift arm. Anyway, this will ensure everything stays nice and straight in the future.

I had a look around various sites for that GM part number (#10232676 Protector, Fuel Feed & Evaporative Emission & Return Pipe) and it is long discontinued, and was apparently intended for the LT1 cars, to protect their fuel lines (which would explain why GM stopped installing them sometime during the 1998 model run). I found a few pictures of that part installed on 1993-98 cars, and noted that it doesn't attach to the fenders, but merely to the underside of the car. So it only protects the fender flange by the fact it hangs down lower; it doesn't attach to the fender (and strengthen its mounting method) the way the Detroit Speed product does.
