The middle fitting is for a cable that goes to a "dashboard" that mounts to the handlebar to show the gear that has been selected. A bad idea that quickly disappeared. This lever will still work on your bike provided the number of gears matches what is on the bike.

Won’t matter if you only ever use the big ring.
