Default New Ranger: metal tape on front of box, behind cab?

Hi,

Had my bed Line-Xed this morning... Later on when checking between the bed and the cab, I noticed a couple of wide strips of a metallic tape applied to the front side of the bed. Goes from the top to the bottom, one strip on the left and one on the right.

What is this for? Should I remove it? From the factory or perhaps something from the Line-X shop - I didn't look closely before...
