Missing door hinges lubricant ?

Not sure if its only my ride but I am not seeing any door hinges lubricated. Is it by design or they simply missed it?

WD-40 is not good for anything except removing water and moisture, short term. Left alone over time, it coagulates into a sticky, gummy coating that attracts dust, grit and does not lubricate or repel moisture. For example, if you drop your gun in the water or you get caught out in the rain while hunting, spray it down with WD-40. But, ASAP, do a thorough clean and lube with [your solvent and lube of choice].

I noticed this a while back and lubricated them this evening before seeing this thread. The doors didn’t open smoothly and made a slight scraping noise. Much better now

Mine also did not have any and I greased them up myself, although there was no noticeable noise.
