It is quite common for cars to have side airbags in the seats. For example, here is a Chevrolet Spark (with doors removed) after an IIHS side crash test, showing the seat-mounted side airbags (in addition to the side curtain airbags that deploy from the inside of the roof rail):
There usually are "airbag" labels where the airbags deploy from. On the Bolt, the "airbag" label is on the plastic around the seat bottom, even though it looks like the airbag deploys from behind a cover on the plastic on the outer side of the seat back.
