Default Strange component on the camry underbody

I had the camry '95 LE lifted today for inspection
and I have noticed something like a piece of rubber
or some sponge tucked in a snug spot between engine
oil pan and the automatic transmission...
Further inspection shown two studs on the transmission
case holding this rubber piece in place...

What is it ?
What is its function there ?

=========================================
Mine has the same thing.
I needed to remove it along with a heavier "stiffener plate" right next
to it, before changing the oil pan gasket.
Factory manual shows this as a prelininary step.
The foam is attached to a piece of sheet metal that bolts over the
flywheel at the bottom of the transaxle on the engine side. My guess is
that it may help quiet vibration
