Yahamha built the engine not the exhaust. They make motorbikes and pianos lol BUt they hired them to engineer the engine
Aaand the acoustic design of the car came from Yamaha which included them working on the noise from the engine, intake, cabin driver experience and the exhaust note. At least thats what ppl at Lexus HQ told me when we were staring at one in their parking lot.
And after some searching to help you confirm it you can find it on their Lexus-global.com site under innovation.
