Kindle front covers are simply images, no code. If you submit a file with a cover html page, it will be omitted from the mobi -- you can see a notice about that in the output from kindlegen.

If the image isn't the same ratio as the screen, Kindle will show white bars beside it. If you see black bars, they were in the cover image.

You can quickly confirm if it's all in the image by changing the view to landscape mode, then you must see white bars beside whatever was the actual image.

The thumbnail cover shown on the Kindle "grid view" booklist will be made from the cover image, so you would see black around that if there were bars in the image.

I never distort a cover to make it Kindle 4:3 ratio, but often crop and/or rearrange elements it if it's too tall.
