Bracket anodes may be rectangular blocks, often screwed into recesses; or in the case of some Yam's a large handle-looking thing. I would think there'd be something there, as the bracket is somewhat insulated from the motor proper by grease. Make sure the prior owner hasn't painted over it (and replace it if he did.)

I had a stainless transom on one of my boats. It looked great but the galvanic activity was hair raising. Anodes woukd disappear in less than a year.

Not a problem if the boat isn't kept in the water you need the water to complete the circuit

I had a neat engineered plastic 12mm backing plate on my old boat, very neat & would cure the problem with ease.
