Default Engine sound proofing

Does the 3.0tdi usually have the thick padded sound deadening on each head as per the v8 tdi's? If so any part numbers?

Not saying no as I don't have any experience of those engines, but can't find anything in the parts catalogue for anything other than the plastic cover itself (059103925AF or 059103925BF), which might have some sound deadening material attached.

I've had the 3.0tdi and 4.2tdi both had foam underneath the engine cover, the latter one the foam crumbled away so I stripped it off the engine cover

Not sure what foam would do, soundproofing to be effective needs mass as well as a degree of softness.
