Well that's lame. It would be pretty easy to take one of the other ones out and bring it in to a hardware store to match a couple new ones. Still sucks though. Mine were pretty damn tight.
If you wanted a couple factory replacement bolts, PM me your address. I recently removed the factory mirrors and handguards, and I replaced the factory 4-bolt clamps with a 2-bolt Brembo clamp.

I suggest your dealer buys a torque wrench.

Annnd... welcome back! I loctite the hell out of everything that can be loctite'd.

I even lost big bolts that WERE loctite'd (like the centerstand bolt).

literally every Ducati dealer in Colorado is lame in some way or another, really. luckily for service, we have Boulder Motorsports (just a Ducati service and tune place, no bike sales) and bonus is I'm in Boulder and all the dealers are in Denver, usually > 1 hr away, so just time-wise its nice.

not sure if the dealer puts those bolts on though, they have that little yellow mark on, which i thought was a factory thing, i dunno though.

Brian will sort ya out! The other bolt looks like it has wear on the inside as well, and the mark on the handlebar looks like it's been moved (possibly from the two missing bolts).

I just pulled a couple of brake lever bolts from my '17 over the weekend and luckily they had OEM loctite on them.

Or take their existing wrenches and actually check the bolts after they get the bike out of the crate.
