Default What are these?

Hello Again. What are the shiny metal things on the main timing gears connected to the heads? I've watched countless videos, and in none of them are these things present...

ACVS mechanisms/gears - the actuators the create variable timing by "rotating" or changing the relationship/phase of the cams they drive with respect to the crankshaft. There are solenoid valves that control them. Of course the ECU drives the solenoids . . .
