Welcome! I'm Ron Z! I will do my best to answer all of your questions. For easy access to this thread, bookmark it now! Please read everything!

The fuse for the Brake Lights is located in the driver's side fuse block. It's a 10a, number 51, and should be labeled as "STOP". If the fuse checks ok, and all 3 brake lights are out, this may be a problem with the Stop Lamp Switch, located at the top of the brake pedal arm.

the fuse configuration does not even match a 2008 Scion XB

The image above is not a "full view" of the fuse block. Just a generic view to show you fuse #51 (and if i'm not mistaken, it's vertical layout, not horizontal). It will be labeled as "STOP". The first of the 3 images above is the actual location in the xB.

nothing on the fuse box, cover , or markings say "Stop"

I'm sorry you felt the need to rat emy service as "bad". I'm trying my best to help you. I can only provide you with whatever the repair manual is showing me. Please make sure you are in the correct fuse block. The fuse should be the 7th one down in the 2nd row. It's a red, 10a fuse.
