Exclamation Hex Flange Nut on Axle BACKED OFF!!!!

First, I have a 2014 JGC Laredo E.

Has anyone had an issue with the Hex Flange Nut backing itself off the bolt completely?? The other day I was driving home and I heard this clanging noise in the front passenger wheel.

When I got home, I pulled the wheel center cap that covers the lug nuts on my XD Series Monsters to find the HEX FLANGE NUT just free floating in the cap and that is the only thing that kept it from flying away.

What's even more amazing is that the wheel didn't fly off! Perhaps the only thing that helped was the caliper grasping the rotor.

Any insight or knowledge of this happening to someone else would be helpful.
