Turbochargers can have ports for many things, oil and coolant lines on the center bearing section, wastegate ports on the turbine housing, and blow-off valve recirculation ports on the compressor housing, Etc.

It's there so you can install a brass barb to use as a boost source for a wastegate or MBC/BCS.
