Missing coverplates

NFPA 25, 2017 edition (and previous editions) in requires that coverplates found to be missing are required to be replaced.  Is it the intent that all coverplates are required to be replaced, OR, if the owner/occupant wants to maintain the aesthetic appearance of the sprinkler system, then the coverplate is required to be replaced with a listed coverplate for that concealed sprinkler assembly?  I do not understand that the actual coverplate serves a fire protection function, and should therefore be replaced only if the owner/occupant wishes it to be replaced.
