Here is the deal, straight from the horses mouth. TLDR? It is not a "RECALL
" hence why that "useless" official recall site made and maintained by Kawi was "useless".

Is your CCT noisy? No, don't worry about it, no need to change it. And changing it out simply because there is an advisory isn't going to make things better/worse If so and you do have abnormal chain slap/noise? Then bring it in and the dealership should cover it if they diagnose it as such.
