Default Felt dots?

Does any one know what these felt dots are for? I have seen them on 3 different homes in the last couple weeks. They are placed every 6 to 10 feet all the way around the home usually 2 to 4 feet above grade. About a 1/4" round and 1/8" thick. There is another thread about this with almost 500 views, Mike suggested posting here to see if any one knows. Thanks.

It's not felt.

It half of a hook and loop system.

You might just have something there. All I could think of was that they were some kind of marker.

These "felt dots" are part of the packaging for aluminum extruded material such as doors and the hardware....we used to stick them on the interior of the Z-channel to prevent to door from slamming shut and waking up the entire neighborhood.

Never came across the cork ones, felt dots were also part of hurricane shutter hardware for accordions and roll-down shutters...either way, they serve no purpose for the inspection.
