I submit that, just like the K-30's "baseball cap", it protects the lens mount from rain. It was described this way on one of the blogs I like to read:

The K-30's adverts were pretty overt about this, either showing it with water droplets like it had been to the gym, or right in the rain or similar wet situation:

I just recently joked about the Pentax marketing department in another thread but the latter photo advert is why I became a Pentaxian and I was so close to going Nikon!

Rain actually got into my K-30 and destroyed it but Pentax replaced it for free after 2 years out of warranty. I never took the new one out in the rain though! 😁
