Question about roof trim, loose?

2001 325i
I noticed at the car wash, that when the blower dried my car a piece of trim appeared loose, flapping if you will. I applied some even pressure on the trim and it appears to 'snap' back into place. My guess this might be by design for ski racks or something like that. Is this by design? I have attached a picture of where exactly the part came loose.

Worse perhaps was the guy in front of me who left his sunroof open where he was helpless to watch water poor into front seat as car rolled through wash in automated fashion.

I'm pretty sure you pull those off and screw in the bike racks. I would go pull mine off and check but my car is in the shop.
