K2 Formulas -- what are these pieces? [pic]

I just got a set of 2011 K2 Formula bindings and in the box were these two square pieces of foam. The directions made no mention of them. What are they for? Each one is about 2mm thick, feels like soft durometer EVA, and has no adhesive or die-cuts (i.e., it's not the freebie stomp pad). Any ideas? I included a pencil to provide scale.

It feels like padding but there's no matching area on the baseplate to indicate placement location.

no like they just used it as padding for when shipping and moving them around to stop the bindings from getting scratched banging into each other and such?

Hmmmm...they were in a separate compartment within the box. I suppose they could be padding for shipping, but they way they were tucked in there they weren't really in a position to do such a function. Maybe someone at the store took the stuff out and shoved it back in before I got to it.
