The foam wrap is nothing that the factory would put in. Looks like some sort of control box, maybe alarm. The foam and tape were probably used to make sure it doesn't move wher ever it was pushed into behind the dash.

I'd stuff it back in, but secure it better so it doesn't fall out again or move.
