Comments from Submitter:
There is no 4282 (2x16 plate) extra item. I just opened a new set; in addition, this kind of item is (almost?) never present as an extra in sets of this size.

Hello,
I am sure the admins will repost their policy about Extras for you. However,
I will just quickly let you know that extras vary by region and that it is very
common to find a large part such as this as an extra in a small set in the US
market. Any items that come loose in the box frequently include an extra.

Thanks Jen

Yes exactly. Rules for extras:
"Removing or Changing Extra Items - Extra parts can vary depending on
when and where a set was manufactured, meaning that some new sets may include
them and others may not. The quantity of these extra parts can also vary. Extra
parts are typically not removed or reduced
in quantity unless it can be determined
that they were originally added or increased in error."

In this case only two sets were reported to having this plate as an extra
This one
 
Set No: 31072  Name: Extreme Engines
* 
31072-1 (Inv) Extreme Engines
109 Parts, 2018
Sets: Creator: Model: Race
and this one
 
Set No: 60148  Name: ATV Race Team
* 
60148-1 (Inv) ATV Race Team
230 Parts, 2 Minifigs, 2017
Sets: Town: City: Off-Road
So it can happen that somebody have such an unusual extra

(btw yesterday this set suprised me about extras included in it https://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemInv.asp?S=70829-1)

So we've seen strange thing in extras, sometimes it feels that the main rule
for extra is no rule what is included

For 60148 this extra plate was confirmed by our former inv admin, so there is
no doubt that it can happen, rarely but can.
See this post for example
https://www.bricklink.com/message.asp?ID=1061615

For 31072 this extra was added later after the set had been inventoried
https://www.bricklink.com/messageThread.asp?ID=231531
Here there is no information about source unfortunately but as earlier had happend
that this plate had been an extra, inv admin in that time had no reason to not
to belive the submitter.

Summarizing we do not delete extra if such extra was earlier reported even when
if it happened in only a few copies of set and it is a rare case. So this request
will be reject.
