Bits of plastic found in the glovebox of my new cab, serious?

Found these in the glovebox today and concerned they may be part of the roof mechanism (roof works fine)

Can anyone identify them?

can you see any evidence of something broken still inside or around the glovebox? Could it have been something broken that someone else put in the glovebox to "keep safe"?
