There is a second smaller battery under the hood close to the windshield. What is this battery for?

The smaller battery is under the plastic cover (fresh air intakes) in the middle.

It appears that the pictures are from a right hand drive Evoque. Looking at my Evoque, the brake fluid reservoir is where this picture shows the secondary battery. On a right hand drive Evoque
the brake fluid reservoir is under a separate cover on the right hand side of the vehicle.

I don't really understand how this secondary battery is replaced. Like you said, on the left hand drive Evoques that battery (and the small access panel) is moved more over toward the passenger side. But when the access panel is removed all it does is barely give you access to the positive terminal. It looks like the entire plastic piece that runs the full width of the car and goes under the windshield wipers would have to be removed. And it appears that this pieces actually has a semi-permanent seal to the bottom part of the windshield. Does anyone know how to change/access this secondary battery? I haven't been able to find it in the service manual.

When did the Evoque add the Eco auto start/stop functionality with the secondary battery and twin solenoid starter? My service manual claims to be a 2015 but it doesn't mention the 9 speed transmission so it is obviously a 2013 or older manual. Since I can't find any mention of the second battery, the start/stop or a twin solenoid starter in the manual I am assuming it was added in 2014 or later.
