Urgent Help Required! Accidentally sent DAI to the Matic contract address

Last week somehow in the rush of things, I accidentally sent $35k DAI to the MATIC contract address instead of my metamask address.

I realize almost anytime this mistake happens, it’s practically lost forever.

I spoke with a few friends who work at Alameda Research and they showed me that the MATIC contract code has a transfer function in it, meaning the devs should be able to call it and retrieve my funds.

Am I able to get some help with this?

I am going to link the contract code that shows the transfer function is enabled as well as my transaction:

Thank you very much for taking the time for this.

Does anyone have the keys to the contract? Like do the matic devs have keys to it to transfer the funds back?
