'tis permanent. Just trim it off flush to the tyre carcass.

If you're really worried you can pop the tyre off, and stick a normal puncture repair patch to the inside of the tyre wall.

It is permanent but I'd leave some sticking out rather than trim right back to the carcass

How so? I'd be worried that'd catch on something and rip out.

Because the "plug" partly works by being bigger than the hole on both sides to stop it coming out in either direction. Imagine an "hour glass" shape. If you chop off one side it then becomes a "wedge" shape which can come out easier.... I know it's not that simple but that should get the point across....?
