I'm pretty sure I read they replace just the inflator. The parts shortages are such that TRW has started production on a form-fit-function replacement for the Takata inflator. Some car companies are not sourcing the replacements from Takata because the replacement part from Takata has been found to be defective. Car & Driver reported that a few weeks ago.
A manual transmission can be set to "comfort", "sport", and "track" modes simply by the technique and speed at which you shift it; it doesn't need "modes", modes are for manumatics that try to behave like a real 3-pedal manual transmission. If you can money-shift it, it's a manual transmission.
