While observing taxiing A321 planes, I noticed that they had an open hatch-like opening on the bottom right of door 4R. I marked it here on a picture I found online.

I could not locate it in the Airbus A321 Aircraft Characteristics manual. What is it for? Why was it open? Does it stay open during flight?
