Mysterious rubber plug found on floor after farkling

So yesterday, I put my Wolfman Enduro tankbag on and pulled the seat to install my Stearns ATV seat cover, both from my DR650 that I traded in. A few hours later, as I rolled the bike out of the garage, I found a black rubber plug on the floor. I am reasonably certain the plug was not there before.

It has no part number on it, is 7/8" in diameter, the cap is 1/4" thick, and it has a central mushroom-shaped post that is about 1/4" high and 1/4" in diameter. So it is clearly designed to plug into something. Any ideas where it could go? The plug looks pretty clean, as if it was not exposed to the elements. If no one has any ideas, I may just pull the seat again and look in the mounting area to see if there any empty holes.

Edited to add: I just looked at the seat parts diagram at Oneida. It looks to be a cushion. I will have to pull the seat and stick in back in.

Front side near bottom of body fairing both sides.

It faces in prevents a thing (metal I think) from hitting the motor. Mine got kocked out and I could figure how to get my hand in there and put it bacl... left it out so far so good

It was the left cushion at the front of the seat pan. As soon as I pulled the seat and started to look, I could see where it went, since there was an empty hole there, and the right cushion was in place.
