I believe that it's sole intended purpose was to flash the PCM the first time. They are assembled with no memory and once completed they are flashed and tested. Once passed they are completely dipped in an epoxy to protect the board for the environment. After that the port is left accessible make the PCM upgrade-able through firmware flashes. Since the factory can't know that a firmware flash is going to happen it's protected from corrosion. My '97 mustang has the same connection and it's never been flashed but it can be if Ford decided that it needed to be done.
