Clearly mechanical. Mechanical AF coupler failure?

The first picture shows the mechanical AF coupler (AKA "screwdrive") is sitting much deeper than I'd expect. I suspect a component that holds that in place came loose, and was tossed into the screen by the mirror.

This is likely to be a very rare issue, so unless a lot of others report the issue, I wouldn't be too worried.

Sorry this happened to you.
