E350 Front Brake Caliper Question-lubricate?

Hi guys, I just completed a front rotor and pad change on my AMG Sport Packaged 4-Matic 2009 E350 and was curious about the front caliper slider pins...I cleaned them up nicely before reinstallation however, I noticed that my car shows no prior signs of lubricant or anti-seize on the 9mm Hex Bolt pins that hold the caliper to the retaining bracket--I also see no mention of anti-seize or lubrication in my Shop Key subscription....maybe I am used to North American Metal...am I missing anything? My Zimmerman rotors also very clearly mentioned "applying NO paste" to the hub upon re-assembly in their included instructions aside for the outer edge hub surface after the rotor has been mounted. Any input?

Fixed caliper floating dual pistons I never lube the slide pins at the top of the pad. They should remain relatively centered with little movement due to the one piston on each side design.

Makes sense due to the more sophisticated design
