I'm sure there are name-brand pads out there that don't have the padding you're talking about, but I can confirm that the RaceFace T2 absolutely has padding on the downtube - both underneath it and on both sides of it.Nice IBIS! MIght start a thread "show us your MTB" so we can see what other Rivian owners own in terms of bikes.
I just ordered this one: CyclingDeal Tailgate Bike Pad - Mountain Bike Carrier Bicycle Rack Cover Protection Mats for Pickup Truck - 52" Wide Fits up to 5 Bikes (amazon.com)
My friend has it on his F-150 and it's a great, high quality pad at a great price. What I have never understood about all the high end pads is there is no padding on the downtube which is the part that ultimately straps in - even in yours, the fork is strapped in. This one has little "cradles" that your downtube fits into and keeps the bike very secure - hoping it fits well on the Rivian. Will report back soon, I take delivery Saturday.
