If it's the same as on the 3021, the plastic triangular-shaped plug is just a spacer for the legs to butt against when they're folded. It's a loose fit in the end of the column and not nearly solid enough to mount a camera on. The 3/8" threaded stud may be meant for attaching a stabilising hook or other accessory. On the 3021 the plug can be removed by pressing in a sprung retaining pin, which allows the column to be removed and/or reversed, so your ball head ends up underneath if you want.

PS - If yours has a screw instead of the sprung pin, you may need to carry a screwdriver, but I think the purpose is the same.

cheers
