What is the purpose of this blank pad on the Nintendo Switch?

What is the purpose of these blank pads? I had to replace the inductor underneath of them and a little bit of solder is stuck on the bottom right pad. Would it hurt anything if I leave it there? It is slightly bridged to the inductor. I’ve tried solder wick but the solder does not want to get soaked up.


Edit: It won’t let me add images to the post. The pads I am referencing are above the 2 µH inductor on the front side of the board. The smaller pad has the little bit of solder.
