Default No transmission dipstick?

I went out to the car and looked for the transmission dipstick. After looking for 10 minutes I got the book out. The first thing the book says under "Checking automatic transmission fluid" is "The 5R55s transmission does not have a transmission fluid dipstick". WTF? So, you have to take it to the dealer to have the transmission fluid checked? What is that all about?

I don't think ANY of the cars that I own that are 2006 or newer have a tranny dip stick.

Yeah, the OM is just CHOCK full of those little tidbits...
