Modem Cooling Question

In the pic on the left you see the heat sink with a thermal pad on the bottom and on the right you see the processor. What I'm not sure about is if that's the exposed die or if it's like a tiny IHS and either way why you would want the thermal pad to cover it entirely like that. Do you think it would help its cooling if I took the pad off and applied paste to just the presumed die instead?
