No a boss is a pace in the the casting meant to drill out a hole for the dipstick. They may save costs in later model years by not drilling the hole then have to cap it when they don't make the truck model that needs it anymore. However it would cost them to change the tooling used to make the casting in order to eliminate the boss so it will still be there since it costs nothing.
