Tiny plastic rods jammed inside EA888 Fuel Injector?

Today I was replacing the #3 fuel injector as it got stuck open and failed. After I pulled the #1 injector off the manifold since it stayed in I noticed a tiny ~1cm length black plastic rod wedged in the injector fuel inlet opening sticking out. I pulled it out of the injector. If I look inside I notice what looks like 2 other "rods" jammed in there still. I looked at the other fuel injectors and none of them have this in the opening including the brand new one I got. Weird thing is I replaced that #1 injector with a new one from the dealer 2 years ago and have had no issues at all running the car, and never threw codes for the number 1 cylinder. Anyone seen this before??? Its super bizarre I've been googling for answers but no results.

Injector part number with the rods inside is 06H906036P. It looks like they are supposed to be there? Just wondering if its some sort of fuel limiter or something. Not sure if I can jam the loose one back inside and reinstall it.

I gently tapped the back of the injector the remaining 2 came out. All exact same size and length. Never seen this shit before its tripping me out lol. Not sure what do ? Jam them back in and reinstall? Leave them out?

Okay its gotta be part of the filter basket assembly in the injector after it broke apart..... and that was the newest injector. Found this pic after an hour of searching on The Injector Clinics Facebook page
