Default Subaru OEM Roof Racks Question

I've tried looking for the answer to this everywhere on the web and can't find any info on this. I have a 2014 WRX Hatch. I've seen the OEM roof racks with both the black strip and without. Refer to the pictures below:


With Black Strip



Without Black Strip

I am wondering if the roof rack with the black strip is able to slide out and expose a slotted rail, similar to that of the Thule Aerobar. Or... does the black strip only act as a wind diffuser and is bonded down onto the cross bar? Can anyone answer me this?

I believe it is supposed to help cut down wind noise. I've never slid the rubber out to see what was in there. Also, i remember seeing an aero set as well-just not sure if that was the difference in the slots or not...

If it is supposed to cut down on wind noise, it fails.
