How to use Logstash plugin ID effectively?

I am using logstash-kafka input plugin, and I have configured the ID setting, as referenced here:

I thought this would allow me greater debugging ability, but I have not seen that id show up in any manner when running the logstash monitoring API's.

Specifically, I have been looking at the output produced by this command:
curl -s localhost:9600/_node/stats/pipeline?pretty
because that's where I presumed it would show up, but I have not seen the string I set for the ID anywhere.

Am I looking in the wrong place?? If I set a plugins id, where can I utilize that tool to gain insight on my logstash processes??

I am using Logstash 5.1.2.
