Dumb Question Regarding Engine Fan

Hi all,

2007 E91 328i six speed. I was just inspecting under the hood when I noticed a metallic clip on one of the blades of the engine fan. I did not necessarily see a crack in one of the blades. This is likely the cause of the slight vibration when it's running. Unless it's supposed to be there, in which it's a balancing piece?
Just wanted to be sure that indeed this is not part of the fan. Yes this is a dumb question. Big whoop wanna fight about it?

It's a balancing weight.
