Is endodermis present in stele? Or is it present just outside stele in all plants? Please explain.

The plant stele consists of the primary vascular system of the plant axis (stem) and its associated ground tissues (e.g., pith). The stele consists solely of primary tissues differentiated from procambial strands derived from the apical meristem. Secondary vascular tissue (wood consists of secondary xylem) is derived from a vascular cambium.
Outside the stele lies the endodermis, which is the innermost cell layer of the cortex.
