Trunk driver's side weird space?

I just got my 3 yesterday, and I noticed this tonight in the trunk, left side. There's a space that goes down, and it looks like there's a rim, like there should be something resting on top to cover that area. Am I missing a piece? Is there supposed to be some accessory stored there I didn't get?

Hope the pictures are helpful in seeing what I'm talking about. Tried doing searches here, on Facebook groups, etc and couldn't find anything...

Perhaps a place to keep your tire repair kit? Or snacks... you can never have too many snacks you know.
Unfortuntely the original tire repair kit doesn't quite fit in there (but you can kind of wedge it in so at least it doesn't move around in the trunk if you don't want to use the velcro). Many cars have small compartments like this in the trunk to hold small items.

I store the following items in that cubby hole:

  • 5 adapters for the portable charging cable (5-15, 5-20, 10-30, 14-30, 14-50) - don’t expect to ever use them, but they’re always handy
  • Tool from aero wheel kit to remove plastic lug nut caps
  • Suction cup to remove center wheel caps

In the Model S, that's where the UMC was stored. They kept it the same for the Model 3.
