Pedestrian warning system. No sound

Hi all. My dec 2020 model 3 does not make any sound in forward. Isnt it supposed to make some sound to warn pedestrians? I hear a sound in reverse, not very loud but its there. I notice in parking lots pedestrians do not seem to know i am behind them.
Any observations would be appreciated. I dont really care, but it is curious, and yes.. Radio is off so... I assume i should hear something in the car.

I don't hear the forward sound from the driver seat either. I do hear the reverse space ship all too well.

However, if I put in a boombox sound for the "driving sound" I can hear that. For example, I put on coconuts and am stopped at a traffic light, I can hear it then.

Well that's it, I'm finally enabling coconuts! 😄
