XPS 18 Powered Stand connector

This question is not answered

The XPS 18 Powered Stand is advertised as having a 7 pin pogo magnetic connector.

I bought the stand and when I put the XPS 18 on it, there is NO magnetic attraction (pun intended).  

I was envisioning the connector to be like Apple's MagSafe connector where the tablets connection to the stand is held solidly in place by a magnet.  But there is no magnet that I can find, and it makes lining up the tablet and the connector a guessing game every time.  Also, the tablet is wobbly on the stand.

Should the connector be magnetic?  If not, why is the term "magnetic" used?
