Default Third Bulb Housing in Euro Combination Lights?

Just received a set of brandy spanky new combination lights from Paragon Products. I've noted this before, but there is a 3rd bulb "housing" just outboard of the fogs. Not sure what the function of this smaller bulb, perhaps a position or parking light in some other country. Does anyone have a sure fire explanation of this open slot, perhaps a bulb part number and anything else that can enlighten me and the RL trust?

City lights. Maybe a 175 bulb? Can't remember.
You could either wire them to the parking lights, or just wire them so they're on when the engine is running as a pseudo daytime running light.

This is a slot for parking light on Euro cars. It takes R5W bulb if I remember correctly.
