I agree with the others, it most likely where a pyrometers threaded male end was inserted into the exhaust gas stream. That is typically a small stubby looking insert with wires coming out of it, the sensor threads into the exhaust and the wires are connected to a gage. Often the wires from an aftermarket sensor to gage are not adjustable in length, a sensor - gage calibration issue. So if you don't have a bunch of wires under there or in the cab then someone pulled the pyrometer system. They could have plugged the exhaust hole or just abandoned the sensor in place and either blew out. If there are threads you are good, just put some never sieze (Copper Blend high temp) on a plug. No threads, make some, maybe go up a size. If you do drill and tap anything into the exhaust use a magnet on a stick to get any shavings out before you plug her up. You don't want any shavings going through your turbo.
