what's the purpose of the hole on right top of bumper, backup camera?

I was thinking of a dash cam with rear camera, and noticed my truck also has this hole where a camera or its wire can sort of go.

That’s how you get the spare tire down. The tools under the passenger seats goes thru that hole to the spare tire winch to lower it down

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?
