There are several fuses in the TIPM that don't have a function due to the option not being installed.
That fuse feeds a pin that connects to a harness under the TIPM. With no rear blower installed, there is no wire in the harness to connect to the pin.
The fuse is fed by relay K9, which has no control contact, so the coil should never be energized.
So we come down to your battery voltage readings.
You said after 5 days with the fuse out, it maintained 12 volts. In order to evaluate that reading, we need to know a more exact reading, such as 12.6, or 12.3, etc.
What is the battery's voltage reading right after shutdown?
With the fuse in place, what is the voltage reading after a day of sitting?
With the fuse out, what is the voltage reading after a day of sitting.
Do you have a meter you can use to monitor real-time draw on the battery?
