Wait, what? Really?

While doing an oil change today in our little fishing village on the beach of the Sea of Cortez, I noticed something I didn't like in the engine room of my 2018 P 1000-5. Very near the starter motor there is a rubberized shield or cover that
seems to be trying to protect an electrical connection but was open on the big end, which faces up, ready to trap water and funnel it down into the connection itself. Although we operate in a desert and mountains, we drive through a lot of water from fresh water springs and along beaches and across shallow salt water estuaries, so our Pioneer gets its feet wet quite a bit. It just looks like one of Honda's few bad ideas.

Can anyone tell me what it is trying, and failing, to protect? Should I tie it off to close it, or put a drain hole in it? Or just forget it? See white arrow in picture, taken from the right side, looking at the top of the engine.
