Too my surprise when I opened the tailgate a piece of plastic dropped out. The plastic was the rear light cover on the under side of the tailgate.

Basically if you have something tall in the boot, in my instance a chiller box, if the electric tailgate comes down, manual you would get the feedback that you had hit something, the electric tailgate keeps going so twanged the plastic out of it's clipped position which covers the tail light access. The cover slides in place by a 1/2" lateral movement, so a fair bit of force was applied to get the plastic to flex and twang out.

The moral is to push things well back so the tailgate when it comes down doesn't hit anything. Possibly something for those with dog carriers, chiller boxes and other things you carry in the back which are rigid and not placed out of range of the descending electric tailgate.
