Take a look at Service Bulletin 14-016, New Model Service Information. Procedure 7 is install the front strakes. There is an illustration on Page 6 that shows the strake and how it is installed. One of the items I looked for in my visual inspection was to see that they were installed. Made me feel better that the dealer may have done the other procedures before delivery. The strake is most likely there to deflect the air around the tire and for drag reduction.

Great link to the Service Bulletins.

Interesting sidebar: I have 2 rubber plugs from the dealer in my glove box - and the look like Body Plugs in step 6! I wonder if they didn't install both pairs?

Anyone else with leftovers?
