If is annoying you can spray foam on it and muffle it. I've never had a car with an invasive audible reminder like this. I do a lot of slow driving with multiple stops on trails and farm roads and the seat belt alarm becomes very annoying.
One of the plugs is for the chime. He said - email Toyota and tell them you want it disabled. If you consistently have reason not to use a seatbelt, your best option is to pull a belt off any Toyota in a junkyard, cut off the clip, and stick it into the socket. My answer doesn't put the driver at risk, even if on private land, because the seatbelt can be used without rigging a buckle end up. Unplug it and if it goes off your done.
