Attachment of winch

I am the new owner of a Bavaria 40, built in 2013. When I looked under the winch for the jib sheet, I can see 5 screws through the deck from the winch, without any obvious backing plate. Is there a plate embedded within the deck that is not visible? Should I add a backing plate? Image
Would appreciate any advice

Many thanks

From what I understand they sandwich a metal plate in-between the glass.
