Fog light and fuse question

Was checking my fuse box and found a black hot wired to fuse A7. What could this be for? Is this the way it is supposed to be?

My first thought is that the previous owner might have used the fog lights for daytime running lights (DRL's). This is know as the Fog Light DRL hack and is documented here: DRL-Fog Light Hack. Check and see if you have any of the other wiring for this mod installed to confirm.

There is an LED RL with a separate switch. I'll follow the wire and see where it leads. Thanks much!
