Is this rubber plug in the corner a normal thing in V6/2.8l or something weird?

There is a normal metal drain plug in the middle and the 17mm Allan type fill plug in the back of the pan.

Not normal. It may be a lower drain point drilled into the pan by a DIY mechanic or it may have been a leak from scraping the pan and re-sealed with the plug.

Yeah, that was my guess, too.

I went to my local junk yard to find exact car I have, and to "practice" transmission fluid drain & refill before doing the same on my car and I saw this rubber plug... looking weird.

Don't remember seeing one on my car so decided to ask.
