    I would say ignore it, if it works dont worry. A lot of manufactures use the same sensor bodies for a number of vehicles so not uncommon to see strange symbols on parts. It may be a temperature probe that may not be needed on your car as some MAFS have them built in.

    If you aren't suffering any problems with the maf sensor then avoid cleaning them - in some cases cleaning them can damage them.
