Just blowing hot air?

Does this manifold
on a 2.5L Jeep really expel hot air into the main engine compartment or is a part missing?

If you look at the picture
, the side facing away from the screen joins onto the engine. The output on the bottom right presumably joins onto the exhaust pipe/system, but what about the output middle-left, pointing out to your screen?
Background: I'm borrowing a Jeep at the moment, and it makes one hell of a racket-- I heard it had some work done on the manifold recently, so I had a quick peek to see if there was anything immediately loose/etc. I noticed that there's an outlet from the manifold that goes no-where, just expels air into the engine compartment-- this (as a total non-mechanic) strikes me as weird.
Has a part fallen off, or was forgotten to be placed on, or is it working as designed and the noise is born from something else wrong with the new manifold?
