Nope, not part of the IR sensor.

The copper clip is a grounding contact to connect the front to the main case.

The term grounding in this case is a little confusing. In this context it is to control EMI/RFI emissions from leaking out (or in).

Lookup Faraday cage in Google for a deeper understanding.
