Yep, almost all late models do this. The code for mine is in a separate folder and I also wrote it on the back page of the owner's manual. If the manual is still with the car, lots of people write it in.
Write the VIN down on a piece of paper, drive the car to the dealer, go to the parts dept & ask the guy to get the code for you. He'll probably want to be sure that it's your car, that's why you take it to the dealer. It's usually a no cost deal. Call & ask first.
