UniBeast never creates an EFI partition.
The EFI partition is created when you format the drive.

Ok, then why isn't UniBeast writing to it?? And why doesn't clover detect it?

Perhaps you are confusing Legacy and UEFI modes.
UEFI mode uses the /EFI folder on the EFI partition.
Legacy mode uses the /EFI folder in the root of the system disk.
