When you close the lid a plastic "tooth" drops down into that groove and goes all the way to the bottom. The better part is the corners of the lid don't close tightly, so I just leave the cable sitting on the corner when I close the lid.
Different trim levels might have different consoles, but on my SE sport, I have a cable groove in mine that is large enough to fit a finger down into it and there is clearly nothing on the lid that matches up with it. It's definitely a cable groove.
