I dont think they just leave wires for no use. I think the brown one is the mute wire.

Sometimes manufacturers will use the same harness for different models. The brown may be a mute wire on a higher model.

Kenwood does something similar; the better units have separate outputs for amp turn-on and power antennas, but on the entry level models the power antenna wire doesn't work.
