There are no waveforms at all in VIDA. Don't try to find any.

Signal in wiring diagram is not CAN type and not being displayed as. You have misread it.

Some images attached that explain. Control signal is PWM type so that info is correct in VIDA. But there are many times where this is incorrect, especially about voltage ranges. Sometimes I have reported these but usually I don't care because it doesn't matter for me.
