Default Airbag recall question

Takata airbags in the news today. All kinds of manufacturer's affected.
So I searched if Jaguar had a recall.
It showed XF and Range Rover from the identical years but not the XK.
Could someone explain.
Does the XK use different airbags?

Had a quick glance at JEPC; the last steering wheel airbags my copy lists for XF/XK do share a part number: C2P16863 (XK B32753->, XF R47154->)
Earlier cars had no part number overlap, but those are just part numbers...might be the same bags till.

See my thread from 2014:

The OEM airbag supplier might be Autoliv Autoliv Scroll across "Our Partners" at the bottom of the page and you'll find the Jaguar leaper. Interesting company history: Company History

This is disconcerting at the very least! Do we know if XF & XK were produced on the same assembly line? If so, it would be reasonable to assume they actually do share the same airbag manufacturer. Manufacturers rely on as much commonality in parts as possible, especially purchased parts.
This is an issue worth keeping an ear to the rail on!

While researching Autoliv, a member of their Board of Directors came to my attention. His background is ... well, I'll let Arte tell you:

Dr. Wolfgang Ziebart has been the JLR Director of Product Development since 2013. Previously, he was with BMW, Continental AG, and others.
