Default Fuel pump stand - what's up?

Any ideas for the reasoning of the addition of this little piece of rubber hose on the fuel pump stand? Discovered upon disassembly.

My first thought, it was used to hold the lower piece on the stand while inserting into the intake manifold but that makes no sense because the hole in the manifold supports that piece with the flange that is on the top of it. The only other thing I could think of is to maybe bandaid a worn fuel pump push rod bushing that was causing low oil pressure?

Whatever the reason for putting it in there, you could find ten reasons for taking it out.

The purpose for the small section of rubber hose is to prevent/minimize vapor from the rear exhaust bearing contaminating the intake system.

Pertinent, I'll replace with a new one when I top up the blinker fluid

There should be 4 baffles in the metal fill tube. Get rid of the blockage since it will block oil fill and it is not supposed to be there.
