Yes the two pads I believe you are referring to (highlighted in red in the picture below) are present on the package. These are actually structural elements and are electrically connected to the thermal pad. These are re[resented in the drawing of the pin out on page 4 since they are part of the thermal pad and do not provide any separate functionality.
As a general rule the mechanical drawings at the end of our datasheets should be used when assessing the physical dimensions and structure of the package. Other drawings in the datasheet are usually representative images used to convey the ideas being discussed (such as pin function) in that part of the datasheet.
