Power Switch for Pine64 512MB Board - MonarchOfLight - 10-24-2016

So I ordered a push button switch (which I did not receive as an original backer) as well as the Wifi / Bluetooth module for my board and it finally arrived today. However, contrary to images and instructions I've found online, the holes for the switch seem to be soldered closed. Is this a manufacturing error, or is the 512M board different from the rest? The site indicates that it "does not need to be soldered on to the board. Legs can be inserted then bent to keep in place".

The button is pretty optional (and cheap) for the most part, but it's still very frustrating that I can't use something I ordered and waited on.
