A buddy got a code from a honda in the glove box, are you sure there is not a code?

I have been at the ford dealer for 4+ years and have never seen or read or heard of the key code being in or on the car anywhere. I am a ford employee and I don't even have access to get these codes only parts or service managers have this access on the ford website.
