How to do tranny fluid drain & fill on a 2012 mazda6 when there's no dipstick?

So I searched around on the forums after having trouble finding the transmission fluid dipstick on my 2012 mazda6. Turns out newer year models don't have one.

So how exactly am I supposed to do a transmission fluid drain & fill when there's no dipstick to pour tranny fluid into after dumping the old fluid out? Or is there a fill-plug instead?

Or should I just start doing transmission fluid flushes? My 2012 only has about 41k miles on it, not sure if this is too late or not to begin doing flushes...especially when I have yet to change the transmission fluid at all yet!
