Panel Question

I just realized on my new panel there is a knockout on the back of it, in the left top corner. The knocout is open but the panel is flat against the wall. Is the acceptable? theres abo****ley no way for anything to get in or out .

None of the knockouts should have been previously knocked out, if it was new. I think fire code says all holes must be covered or filled, but that can vary by locality.

Is what it's covered with combustible or noncombustible?

If it's up against cinderblock or concrete, I'd say no problem; but plywood or drywall could be a problem.
