This setup is pretty strange if you are used to conventional drum brake adjusters. Well...that and the fact that the drum, hub, studs and bearing are all in the same assembly. There is no star-wheel adjuster in 2014-2015 drum brakes in the US. In 2017, they started using conventional-looking drum brake setups (see images here).

Because I don't know how you would ever figure that out if you can't look an another identical setup while you are trying it while a drum is installed.
Did you try to remove the other drum?
