Edit on plug material
It’s a higher content carbon steel , it looks like it’s plated itself with brass so appears like brass and when you drill it it flakes not ribbons .
I would suggest HSS drill bit rather than high carbon as it might work harden and the only way is carbide then .

Mine had the same plug in and although I got a nos drain pipe I didn't put it in for ease of use but have it handy if I ever decide to.
