Eaton rear differential help

Ok, need some help.
I am changing the rear differential fluid in a 99 Monaco Windsor rear end. No biggie right, well there happens to be 3 plugs in it. A drain plug on bottom. That's easy. About 1/4 way up is a plug with a 1/4" drive ? And about 1/3 way up is a 5/8 box end nut plug with a fill tag on it saying only use extended life fluid. Ok.
Why 3 plugs on differential. All the ones iv worked on only had 2. A fill and a drain. Fill up to the fill and your good.
Can anyone shed some light on the whole fluid level check process please ? With 3 total plugs
Thanks
Kris

The 1/4" plug could be a great place for a differential temp sender. I've seen them in HD truck diffs.

That would be my guess as well.

After draining you would just fill it with the recommended oil till it runs out of the fill hole. When checking it you should be able to feel it with your finger when poked in the hole. Just ignore the extra plug.

Thanks for he replies
I filled it up to the fill hole yesterday and started double guessing myself with that extra plug there. Thinking ? Maybe that's the full site window plug. ? That would make me overfilled. But I took out about 3 and put in about 3 gallons so ??? Had me guessing
So it's the Temp sending unit hole for rear diff ........😀
Thanks again
