S500 Brake Pad Sensor

Bought this car in January; 1996 S500 (W140) Coupe. Finally got around to changing the rear brake rotors today (they were pretty thin).
Anyway, when taking out the old brake pads on the rear, I noticed the passenger side rear brake has a brake sensor wire just like the front brakes... but, no sensor (or wire) on the driver's side rear.
Is this right? I looked all around the caliper for the wire where it would connect on the driver's side, but zip. On the passenger side there is an electrical socket bolted to the caliper where the sensor plugs in, but nothing on the driver's side.
Is the left (driver's) rear brake supposed to have a brake wear sensor? If so, where does the connecting wire run from?
Thanks, KenP
