Just put my private plate on (purchased) model 3 , do you have to let Tesla know that the plate has been changed or do they do everything through the VIN ?

My car was in for service last week, and it had my private plate on which was since they’d last seen it.

Nothing was mentioned, so I assume it’s all about the VIN.
