Under the body by tail lights

So I was looking under my 2012 and seen on the very rear end side by the tailight has a nice plastic cover then if you look at the drivers side they have a foam plug there. I see tons of water and salt getting up there. Why did they put the foam there and has anyone sealed this area up for the winter months?

My guess is Jeep used the foam because it is flexible and allows room for the wiring harness that runs thru the same area. I was initially skeptical about the foam and removed the tailight so I could make sure it was seated; it hasn't been an issue for me. I have seen a thread on here where a member did come up with a more permanent seal.
