Tesla Model X Trivia #2

While installing the trailer hitch receiver last night, I looked up inside the rear bumper cover and saw something dangling down from the wire harness right in the middle of the bumper cover: The hitch is just to the left in the photo.

It looks like it should stick to the inside of the bumper cover. I tried pressing it back on but it didn't stay. I'd guess it's some sort of "patch" antenna, but it's pretty small (very high frequency). Anyone have a clue what this is?
