If your trunk badge or owners manual doesn't say 4matic, it's not a 4matic. If I am remembering correctly, the presence of a 7 speed means it's not a 4matic, I think the 2007 4matics had 5 speed transmissions.

Not only 2007 but all W211 4Matics were with 5 speed transmission.

Sure, MB does not put even extra wires that are only needed for some option that most buyers do not choose and a useless transfer case would cost a lot (and would cause a bit of additional fuel consumption for nothing good).
