Take an awl or some other pointed instrument and poke around the area where you think the screws are likely to be. I suspect that the rubber has closed up over the screws.

There are no marks that could be "closed over holes"....

Sometimes you can not see them, did you use a probe? If you try to cut the stock where it meets the recoil pad you will probably find the screws with your saw blade!
