They would have been on the side of the dome towards the brake wheel end, and out of the photo we are looking at. Photo 12 shows the car from a greater distance, and there may be a "nub" on that side of the dome, but its questionable.
Best Foods, (the BFX reporting mark) doesn't show up in the ORER record until 1932, according to Ian Cranstone's web site, so the car could well have been second hand to them, and if it was a re-purposed petroleum car, could have had its safety valve opening plated over for food service.

I was wondering if the safety/safeties hadn’t gotten knocked off in the derailment?
