Does the JDM 7AFE have an EGR valve?

I can't figure out where the EGR valve pipe bolts to. I can't find anything in the BGB we have here (which I don't think is actually a BGB), or in AllData/ShopKey.
I have this random ass EGR valve just sitting in my $500 ST's engine bay. It was hooked up to the harness, but not bolted to the engine.

Alldata says it's located "Under hood, center, upper engine area, mounted on upper rear of engine near valve cover" and gives me this image:

I see the bolt holes on the head, but not the larger middle hole for the EGR.

I'm going to answer myself here.

JDM 7AFE engines do not have EGR valves, which explains why I don't have the port in the head.

6GC.net says to just jump the two wires in the EGR connector and call it a day.

No idea why I couldn't find this information an hour ago.
