No.

Its called environmental protective cover or a frangible glass dome or an optical dome. This is to protect the seeker against dust or other elements that can diminish the seeker's performance.

It is discarded prior to launch though.
glad you caught the cover, cause I dont see one.

Was it deployed via F-16s or do the JF-17 have similar to ALE-50 decoys?
The "in pylon" MAWS + chaff/flare dispensers are a novel way to retrofit in older aircraft.
We can install CFTs from israel, but pylons might not be acceptable.
