I don't think they know about the importance of radius corners.

They have deflection planes down though.

This has got to add drag?

For more context, additional images in the link.

At one time I did some sketches on something similar. Intent was to control or direct the vortexes until another aero-device could swat it down.

The white and red cars in the link have a wing in the wake.

Partial rooftop fences to kill lift if it goes sideways, that move the Cp back (tailfins), and manage airflow into the wing? No added frontal area. What's not to like?

The difusser appears to be an example of a high-momentum mudflap as called out here:
