I guess it would be something like 19062D.

HTV-8 is 19-062A	

For some reason, everything released from ISS gets 98067- designation even though they leave earth on something else.

You are right, its not debris. And I agree, for instance, what would be the number if it had been ejected before HTV 8 was docked? Although not well versed in these things, I thought the COSPAR ID always followed the launch.

  QX is not listed as debris.  According to Jonathan, it is a cube sat just ejected on Nov 20.
 Personally, I don't think it should have an ISS # as it did not go into space on ISS.
 Since it was launched with HTV 8 on 24.09.2019, it should have a Cospar ID starting 2019-062.
 But, I don't make the rules.

 Note this may lead to a situation where the 2 systems do not parse in sequence, e.g. 44792 is 98067QX, as it is a piece of debris from ISS that has just now been cataloged 21 years after launch.
