I recently purchased my first pistol for self-defense, Smith & Wesson M&P9 M2.0. I read the entire manual and it clearly noted that I need to clean the gun before firing. Page 29 of the owner's manual HERE is clear about what locations need lubed. Everything is crystal clear, except #6 (image below). I'm confused on what #6 is pointing to, exactly. I know that's the slide stop, but it's not clear where I should dab some oil.

I've looked all over the web, but cannot find a good answer.

Yeah, that's the Slide Stop/Release. Looking at my M&P 1.0 there is nothing there to lube. The pivot point is further internal, up by the Take Down Lever. I have not lubed that.

I wonder if it is referring to the detent on the slide lock. The image below shows some metal-to-metal contact. I don't see anything else inside the frame that would be metal-to-metal.
