Question 2013 Elantra Double air cleaner?

While changing the air filter in my 2013 Elantra sedan I noticed what seems to be a built in air filter above the replaceable one, I tried taking it out, but it appears to be built in. Am I crazy or does everyone else have this as well? If this is not normal, it might explain my subpar fuel economy??? If it is supposed to be there I can find nothing online regarding it's existence. Does it need replacing at some point, so many questions!

Upon closer inspection it was definitely put in at the factory, it does pop off of the plastic rivets though. I’ve never seen a secondary engine air filter available for replacement, anyone else seen this? I’d imagine it’s a backup to the main filter.
