if it's just a random hole in the middle of plastics that has clean edges, I think it's safe to assume that it's meant to be there. under the pod like that could be either air inlet, or a pass through for accessory wiring and such.
No idea what its intended purpose is for in life, but I use that hole to pass my quick connect connector through for my battery tender. Keeps it mounted to the battery and accessible outside the plastics in an easy to reach spot.
