What does things taped under the hood mean?

Hello, looked at a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee but I noticed that some things were taped together under the hood. The sales man is trying to say its normal and that he used to be a mechanic. Is this normal? What does this mean, why is there tape? Thanks for your help! Added some more pictures below in the comments

What does it mean when they have tape in it? Why did they do that

Completely normal.

The tape keeps the anti-abrasion covering from coming loose.

It also can keep things together that are assembled together until they are actually assembled.

All cars do this. All

to keep the ends from fraying. You may have seen that done to ropes.

It does look like an amateur job thought. Take a look at a Cherokee on the lot and compare.
