Wiring harnesses different?

I am considering either factory or aftermarket backfit of seat heaters. I assumed the wiring for the option would be present and if I did the backfit I could use the heater element connections and switch connections on the factory harness. The delaer claims that the car won't have those wires if it didn't have that option and that the harness is different for differently equipped cars of the same year and model. This soounds pretty amazing to me as it wouldn't seem to make much sense from a cost / manufacturing standpoint to have different harnesses and have to track which to install that early on the production line? Does anyone know if the harnesses are truly different or the same for all cars within a model in a given year?

BTW, car in question is a 2006 R350

2006 R350
2004 S55
