Unplugged 5 pin cable found by driver's seat

2021 3051 E450: I found this cable on the floor under/behind the driver's seat. It runs under the trim next to the door. 5 pin, circle female plug with a screw lock. Label on cord says "174# 2359 BMW Cable". At least 6' of cord sticking out. TV is overhead, unit has power driver's seat but I can't find any obvious male connectors in this general area. Does anyone know what this cable is for?

Safe travels and happy camping. Click image for larger version

That should be for a backup camera.

I can confirm the back-up and side cameras are working. I can't find anything that isn't working. Just an unplugged cable that seems like it should plug in somewhere.

Good to know it is for a camera, thanks. All 3 cameras are working, so maybe it is an extra or not is use. This is feeling like Ikea's unofficial slogan..."We throw in extra parts just to mess with you".
