Can anyone identify this screw? It’s a T30 torx, threaded part is approximately 1 1/16“ or about 27.5mm long. It appeared as I opened the passenger rear door on my new Model Y. I can’t find anything like this in the parts catalog or around the car, but that Parts search is really bad. Only one thing shows up as TORX30 in the high voltage “penthouse“ diagram but it isn’t even visible on the diagram. Thanks!

The head is badly stripped, so high likelihood that it was removed and then dropped either by an assembly worker or by someone repairing something at delivery. The floor is flat, so it could have slid around while you were playing with the new powerful acceleration and then braking so you don't get a ticket, just after you first got the car.
