Question about old White Westinghouse Refrigerator

I have an elderly Westinghouse refrigerator (about 25 years old; model RT177H) which has some condensation on the inside top of the refrigerator section. There is a gap in the metal lining as seen in this picture taken from below of the metal lining on top of the interior cabinet. There is what appears to be a pre-cut gap in the styrofoam insulation strip with some inner component visible. Does anyone know if this is normal and functional, or if I have some kind of broken seal and leak going on? Thanks for any help you can send my way!

Welcome to the forums.

Can you take another picture.... a wider shot so I can see there that is on the fridge ?

Hard to tell about the foam but that aluminum liner looks to be damaged.

Here are two more photos. It looks to me like the metal has been pulled back so as not to impinge on the plastic wiring/cord/sensor that extends through the aperture in the styrofoam, which looks like it has intentionally been cut at an angle to accommodate the plastic device. Could this opening serve any function? Is it a hazard or just an eyesore? Thanks again!
