Using watermark with MaskEdit and no MaskFormat

I'm new to Syncfusion so bear with me. I'm trying to get a simple textbox with placeholder and the only way seems to be to use a MaskEdit without the MaskFormat. But when I try this the watermark does not show. Below is the lines I have tried:

        @Html.EJ().MaskEdit("UserID").MaskFormat("").InputMode(InputMode.Text).WatermarkText("User ID").ShowRoundedCorner(true)
        @Html.EJ().MaskEdit("UserID").InputMode(InputMode.Text).WatermarkText("User ID").ShowRoundedCorner(true)
        @Html.EJ().MaskEdit("UserID").MaskFormat("????????").InputMode(InputMode.Text).WatermarkText("User ID").ShowRoundedCorner(true)

The last one works, but I don't want to limit the user input.
