Going with the comment from linac Looks like a plastic protection sticker, just there to prevent little stones from damaging the carbon.
If you're really that concerned, get a roll of 3M "copter tape" and cut it to the same size as the cleat. Given the cleat should never move, the most you should get is a bit of marking where the cleat sits which you'll never see as the cleat should never move (and it's helpful when you're replacing cleats)
