Bath door- furnace question

On my clipper 16 fb I notice a spring loaded bullet shaped piece of metal sticking out the door jamb about a foot up from the floor.This is on the bathroom door.Since it opens to where the furnace puts out heat and the inverter fan blows out is it so the furnace quits for a safety issue?

Does this thing actually shut the furnace off when the door is open?
Maybe it is simply a spring loaded catch to hold the door?
Got a photo?
Do you know if there are wires attached to it?

I'll have to run the furnace and see if it shuts down when you open the door.Been way too hot to run the furnace LOL.The door has a regular knob setup so it doesn't keep the door closed.Can't see behind it for wires but I figured it's so you wouldn't scorch a door that opened against it.
