What's it for - round "vent" on right knee kick panel

I'm poking around for a good spot to mount a single aux light switch, and found what almost looks like a 1" round slotted vent on knee panel to the right of the steering wheel. Pulled the panel and there is a round mounting point directly behind that fake vent. Perhaps for an option that doesn't exist on my 2017 Sport? Anyone know what this area might be used for?

Thanks,
Mark

I think it's maybe an auto climate control thermostat? I can't remember what it was when we looked it up- but my base 2012 JK had nothing behind it. I mounted a volume control for my sub. No issues- been there about 4 years.

And don't worry if you screw up the panel. It was something like $25 to replace if I got carried away with the Dremel.

Yep, temp sensor for the auto climate control.
