If that elusive 'plug' stays just that, a plug and Elusive, might I 
suggest 'Shoe-Goo'.

It is a 'stays pliable' but stays in place type of adhesive.
A little degreasing cleaning and then you have a place to dab a blob
of shoe-goo over the hole. Should hold until you need to scrape it off 
for what ever that little hole is intended for.

Unless its also a form of Weep-hole should internal pressures exceed
what ever threshold it might have been designed for.

Might not hurt to try it out if there is no suitable replacement.

I've even used Shoe-goo to afix picture hook stuff to brick to hang art.
YEARS and years later they are still in place with nary a clue that
they might suffer an 'opps' moment.

We used the stuff to repair the windshield washer bottle in my youngest
son's 70 New Port R/T when no replacement was available. Just slathered 
the stuff on until the remaining plastic retained a fill. Even totally 
rebuilt a corner of the windshield washer bottle filling in the gaps 
where the original plastic had crumbled.
