I have seen the pad also. I thought it was to catch any filings or other debris that might end up in the fluid. Something like from not properly cleaning the hole before you put fluid back in or having the plug dirty when reinstalling.

The last differential I cleaned up and rebuilt I think I remember seeing some bits of something on the pad when I cleaned it.

At the time Delta didn't have replacement pieces so I just cleaned it and put in back in. Thought of trying to find a replacement but forgot about it until your post here.
