What is this red dot on the back of the rearview mirror?

I tried doing a search and couldn't find anything. I don't recall coming across any mention of it in the manual either.

??

DOT requirement. It's the targeting point for radar and lidar units.

My guess is that it's some sort of dealership/salesperson code.

It was a sticker people! Very anti-climactic I know, but this thread was good for a few chuckles! I knew I could count on you guys.
