2015 Forester has, with the spare tire and jack, a 6-inch eyelet or puller. What is this for?

That is a rudimentary tow hook. It can be screwed into the hole in the front bumper (covered by a plastic plate, just above the passenger side bumper "guard") or the rear bumper (driver side, just below the Subaru name - above the black trim).

This is in case you get stuck off the road and somebody with a winch or tow-strap can hook up to you and pull you out of the ditch.
