Power port - extra wires???

Hi all. I was going to add a powered USB port next to the existing 12V power port on my 2005 F350. When I removed the face plate, there were two wiring harnesses...a two wire that goes to the power port/cigarett lighter and a four wire one that goes into a holder on the faceplate and seemingly does nothing. Does anybody know what these extra four wires are?

Do you have up fitter switches? Are you saying you just have a Cig/power port as one hole?

I have a Cig plug, and a power port separate.

Thanks for the help. In response to the question, I do have two 12V outlets...the lower one is truly a cigarette lighter and the upper one by the radio is labelled "power port" and I do have the upfitter switches.
