335i - Normal Hole in Engine?

I was inspecting my engine and I noticed this. This is to the left of the oil filter. Looks like a threaded hole to me?





Is this normal? I haven't seen this before.

I vaguely remember that is where the hook for an engine hoist threads in. might be wrong though, is it in the engine block or the oil filter housing?

there should be another one toward the back of the engine. might be under the plastic cover.
