Is the camera lens cover part of the back housing?

Replacement back housing includes the back lens cover, however in two disasembely videos the camera lens cover was still on the motherboard when removing the back housing.

I don't get it!

I want to replace my back cover because my lens is all scratched.

Pretty sure the lens covers are part of the housing. I'm looking to replace my housing as well do to a drop.

It will come with the housing. It looks like the the lens just gets pulled off because it sticks to the camera. You can see in the pic below where the lens surround was stuck to the housing.

Will it be hard to pull off the lens from the camera module?

Is it glued?

This makes no sense. On some YouTube videos the camera lens plastic is not attached to the back housing, and on some videos it is! I don't want to have to take a part my motherboard to remove the camera module to replace the glass over it.

Can anyone clarify?
