You looked in the wrong place. Campy puts the brake release in the lever. It's a small button that sticks out of the lever near the top. It slides right and left, and the lever body is two notches to accept it. One sides notch is deeper, so the lever opens farther releasing the brake.
One benefit of on-lever releases as opposed to on-brake, is that brake function is never compromised. The lever opens more, and so does the brake, but it still works normally when the lever is squeezed.
