AU3 Rotors ... screwed in or not ?

I own an AU3 XR8 ...

I don't know if i was just daydreaming or if it's normal but the other day when i had my front wheels off to change the brake pads i noticed (well it seemed like it) that the rotors just basically sit on the hub or mounting point or whatever it's called and can just be pulled off by hand after taking off the brake assembly stuff ie. they didn't seem to be screwed in as opposed to every other car i've changed pads/rotors on which definitely had the rotor attached with at least a screw .... therefore it seems when the wheel itself is bolted on this in turn holds the rotor in place as well ...

Is this right or am i making things up ? If it's the case then why is it so ?

No there a snack to replace. Just remove wheel & brake calliper, slip old rotor off, slip new rotor on.
