When I saw this I started zipping around from planet to planet to see if I'd been missing them. Now that I was actively watching out for cargo bays being sold by planetary vendors I started seeing them. I was able to find and buy 3 in a span of about 4-5 minutes.
I guess it was possible to miss them if you didn't specifically look for them. I understand the latest patch puts a + on them so you notice them more.
