plastic intake manifold stud

replacing the throttle body on my truck last weekend i checked out the studs molded into the plastic manifold to make sure they were secure and i noticed the bottom left stud had a little bit of a wiggle to it, not much but enough to notice.

i spent an hour trying to google this and cant find any info about it. i wanted to know if anyone knew how this stud is cast into the plastic? i would imagine it has a lip on the inside that would keep it from just pulling straight out.

it tightened down fine but i'm fighting another problem with the truck so i'll have to take it apart a couple more times.

thanks for any help. 03 silverado
