if you are talking about the ceiling fixture, those come off. How else would you change the light bulb?
Look closer. either there are bolts around the outer edge or a center bolt. Taking those down, washing them and replacing was part of spring and fall cleaning always.

Get on a sturdy ladder and use the hose attachment on a vacuum cleaner, turn off the light before cleaning and do it in the day, so you can see and the light bulb won't strain your eyes. God bless 😊

Sometimes there are hidden screws. Sometimes you need to twist or slide the covering. You have to get on a ladder and figure it out.

I have one of those lights over a kitchen island with a stove in it. It is a pain in the a** to take down and put back up. It takes two to three people. Actually it is easier to take down than to put up again.
There is a way to take it down. All lights have access to change the bulb.

yes, just remove it, dump dead critters, wash with soap and water, replace, Repeat every few year or so
