      They obviously do but dealerships have hundreds of cars. Of course there will be some sets of keys are just lying around in the middle of the day. That's probably the case in almost any dealership. Only exception would be supercar dealerships (Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley), those dealerships are probably like mini fort knoxes.
