Roofing Material Identification

Shouldn't this area have some kind of cap?
Manufacturers of interlocking tiles have accessories to detail transitions and terminations. There would have been a hip cap tile available. On that particular roof, it would likely have been a hip roll tile to match the ridge roll.
I didn't see any signs of leaks in the attic around this area.
Like the ridge, the hips aren't subject to collected water running down the field of the roof. A majority of hipped slate roofs don't have hip caps. The rest have sheet metal caps.
