We look into the signatures of the effective Y-bosonic strings in the gluonic profile due to a system of three static quarks on the lattice. The color field is calculated in pure SU(3) Yang-Mills lattice gauge theory at finite temperature with Polyakov loop operators. The analysis of the action density unveils a filled-Delta distribution. However, we found that these Delta-shaped action density profiles are structured from three Y-shaped Gaussian-like flux tubes. The geometry of the Y-shaped Gaussian flux tubes changes according to the quark configuration and temperature. The lattice data for the mean-square width of the gluonic action density have been compared to the corresponding width calculated based on the string model at finite temperature. We assume Y-string configuration with minimal length. The growth pattern of the action density of the gluonic field fits to junction fluctuations of the Y-baryonic string model for large quark separation at the considered temperatures.
