Did anyone receive the Ti switch button cover in your V10R pkg?
Or was this an additional purchase option?

Early V11's also came with the Titanium switch installed and the rubber switch parts separate in a little baggie.

Sunwayman stopped shipping the titanium switch and only shipped the rubber switch after the first run or so. The titanium switch had problems caused by titanium-on-titanium binding when the titanium button slid against the titanium retaining ring. There were a lot of complaints that the button didn't work smoothly. The titanium switch looked better, but worked worse.

Here on CPF someone manufactured and sold to members a black plastic retaining ring which solved this problem and allowed the button to move smoothly.

Steve Ku of Veleno Designs also sold a limited run of his own design of titanium switches. His design featured unique hardware including a button with trit slot, and his switch was an electronic switch instead of a clicky. It was much superior to the Sunwayman titanium switch cover.

Course all of this happened 4 or 5 years ago. Neither option is available today.
