What I was told today is: "an approximate 14 inch round, half inch thick clutch plate is being replaced. In mid-2012 Ford came out with an improved material for this plate which should provide a smoother operating transmission."
Yes, that is a clutch. So either:

a) Your dealer isn't telling you that they found oil on it
b) You have the nicest dealership in America. (Are we talking Lincoln, California or Lincoln, Ontario?)
