Carseat cover - is it blocking the side airbag?

It seems like this seat cover DOES block the side airbag. The little label on the side of the seat that says 'airbag' is covered by the car seat. But I don't know if that's really where the side airbag is…
One of the features of the seat covers is:
  • Open-sided design does not obstruct side air bags
so I'm confused.:confused: Anyone know where the airbag really is? The seat feels soft where the little label is, but there's a hard boxy area well below it, that the seat cover doesn't cover; it could be the air bag mechanism.

Anyone have info or a photo of a new beetle with the side airbags post-deployment?

The boxy area in the side bolster is the airbag module (towards the bottom of the backrest). Any pics of the seat with the cover on?
