I don't know what it is, but, it won't bother anything. It isn't a stressed piece where it is mounted and I honestly don't know if mine had it or not. I put it on, it works well.

As far as the comment about cheap parts being made in Asia, I'd suggest the word inexpensive instead of cheap.  Asia has some extremely good factories up and running in today's world economy that produce fantastic machine, electronic, and other goods.  People shop with their wallet and want a low price and quality, and by and large these days, they can get it.

All I know is buying one of these things for $100 beat the heck out of trying to rebuild the old one, which ended up failing and cost almost as much as a new master.
