Where does the "O" ring go?

Finely getting around to doing front axle inspection on the new to me GW after a year of driving.
Have found a single O ring on the ground after pulling the pins on the calipers on each side. You think I would have looked for it when I went to the other side, but no.
The O ring is about 1/8" thick, just fits over the pins. Why just one? Is the PO messing with me?

All GM type calipers (should) have them installed inside each caliper casting "ear" they surround the pin holes.
A big one and a little one per caliper.
Almost nobody knows they exist or ever replaces them!
They should be lubed w/ good brake grease as well.
They're a consumable anytime a brake job is done should be replaced.

Any autoparts store will have kits that include them.

Question about the O rings, what's their purpose?
