Can someone tell me from where comes this part?

Returning from the Apple store for a topcase repair, this rivet was moving under the capslock key. The key was stuck, so I was able to remove it.

(It's not a classical pentalobe screw, this one is tinier and without thread)

Hello !

I'd like to know if this rivet comes actually from a MBPr, knowing that I've never seen one of these before, if yes, and if it's an important part, I'm gonna return to the genius bar (which isn't near, and it's starting to become boring... blunders on blunders !)

That looks like the brads used to secure the keyboards to the upper case. It does not appear to have been used. Since it was on the outside of the machine I really wouldn't worry about it. Things like this get picked up by magnetized tools. It's probably something that got dropped it at some point by accident.
