It looks like the stock recovery in 4.4.2 is identical to the one in 4.4. I flashed the stock recovery img from the 4.4 SBF that I got directly from Motorola. I wrote down the version number showing when I booted into stock recovery. Then I installed the 4.4.2 OTA update, rebooted the phone and went back into stock recovery and the version number was the same as it was when I was on 4.4.

I'm trying to figure out how one actually flashes the stock recovery so that I can complete the update to 4.4.2. You're saying just extract the img from the official firmware zip and then flash it over in 'download' mode or something, right?

ED: Figured it out but thanks anyway!

im not sure what u are trying to do are you trying to update to 4.4.2

if so find the SBF package and install it with RSD Lite

or find the OTA .zip and install it via stock recovery and it will update.
