Tile shower drain help

Moved Into new house couple months ago. Removed the tile shower drain cover to clean it. And this is what I found. Not sure what I'm looking at, but it doesn't look right to me. It looks all wrong.

People post from tablets all the time, so a mobile device should work. Above are instructions in case you are missing a step. Often times the pictures have to be scaled down as the files are too large with these mega pixel camera.

Pictures from a phone may be too large. They need to be reduced to something in the order of 1080 x 640 or so in order to post. Use the link Z posted to do it. Much easier.

Is that a plastic or metal pipe in the center of the drain? I mean the black round inner part.

It's plastic. It looks like it's was cut off at the top too. Not a clean cut on top

Is there anyway to get a look from below? It appears to be a older mud bed metal drain body that would have been used with a lead pan liner. The ABS plastic has no business being there, it should be all metal. Do you have a picture of what it looks like with the drain cover on? I'm sure it is not correct, but want to verify how they presented it to you.

From below the tile? Or bathroom? It's 1 story house. On a concrete slap. The metal cover was silicone to the tile. It covers the entire hole.
