I installed OpenCart 3.0.3.2 using Softaculous in the CPanel to do some testing. I found this extension already installed in the Extensions / Modifications menu:
Local copy OCMOD by iSenseLabs iSenseLabs 1.1.1 Enabled
  • Is that a normal part of the installation?
    If not, any clue why it is there?
    Should I leave it installed or remove it?
I don't see it in my 3.0.3.1 installation.

I might be wrong ..
but I think this file is a very kind free piece of work by isense labs to solve a issue with earlier versions of OC3 which had a problem uploading ocmods without setting up the ftp in admin/settings ...
Not sure on which OC version this was fixed
Not sure isense labs are connected / approved the use of their work
if you search google for isense labs they will tell you

That ocMod file is not standard to OpenCart, but it's widely used and is safe. It lets you upload .ocmod.zip bundles without entering FTP info in System > Settings, which is very handy (and actually much safer, so you're not putting FTP details into your OpenCart installation). I recommend it to all OpenCart 2.x users, so as long as it's the original version of that and not some modified copy, it should be fine to leave installed.
