Just noticed this on my March 2018 Build Model S 100D with the new MCU. Any ideas why they added these vent slots?
Perhaps to prevent the 3 cameras from overheating? Was there a change in the camera hardware?

I just took a look at my Late 2017 MS75 and I have the same vents with the QR code on the mirror housing and similar numbers.
