LOL Yes, it is the plug that is put into the end of the fill/dipstick tube at the time of manufacture. Its designed to pop out when the dipstick is inserted and just ride out its days drifting in your tranny pan. If its there, its a safe bet that the transmission has never been opened up prior to your opening it.

Feel free to discard it.

Well, it might not mean the fluid has never been changed. It just might mean that whoever changed it before found the thing floating around and thought, "You know, I don't want to mess anything up so since the trans was working before, I'll leave it in."
Or the fluid was changed Jiffy Lube style, with the vacuum pump thing.

Lol, I remember being trained on those....T-Tech is what it was called. Just make sure you dont look into flushing it just to be safe, since you found that piece in there.
