What is this in my rear right wheel well?

While putting on winter tires, I noticed this "box" in my right rear wheel well of my 2012 TSX Wagon. It's near the top, on the "inside", facing the coil overs. I'm just wondering what it is. My guess it's some kind of electrical junction box.

Thanks for any insights!

Cars don’t need junction boxes. Everything is single run, from point to point.

TPMS initiator. Sends wireless signal to the TPMS in the wheel to wake it up etc. There is one in each well.

Thanks, but this box was only visible in that one wheel well. Maybe the others are better hidden; I'll take a look in daylight..
