I have seen precision wire-wound resistors which are in a package with end caps like that. They are usually coated with plastic, which likely burnt away. But, various 2-lead devices (resistor, inductor, capacitor, ...) might use the same "packaging". At least that is true of 3-lead devices (IGBT, MOSFET, Vreg, ...). See if you can measure a resistance, with it out of the circuit. A wirewound resistor might have overheated, but not been damaged.
