Sticker on Rocker Panel?

I have a BSP 07 Yaris Hatch and when I look at back end of the car in front of the back wheels on the rocker panel I guess. There is a color matched looking sticker type deal? Is this for shipping purpose or is it supposed to be there? Its hard for me to explain what it is.

i think there's another thread that talks about this. i'm not sure, but i think they said it could be part of the cold-weather package.

Search for "paint AND problems" and you will find many complaining (I have yet to see any issues):

Here is one such thread:

The paint job on my Yari is excellent.
However, i think a lot of cars have similar issues with their paint sooner or later. In my opinion i think it all comes down to how you (the owner) maintain the appearance on a daily basis; also, it may depend on the environment around you- whether you live in a place w/ lots of gravel and/or dirt etc etc.
