Usually that gold colored nut I think you’re referring to just holds down the top triple clamp. The steering stem itself is held in place with nuts underneath.
I suppose you could get a thin gauge metal bracket that fits underneath it if there’s enough threads but there’s a lot of vibration there. It’s probably not the best place for a mount if vibration is a concern.

That gold stem nut has is there to hold the top triple down on top of the stem. It may be an aftermarket nut but it still has a job to do. If you were to remove both forks, that nut is the only thing securing the top triple in place.
I believe I have seen mounts built into that nut. While riding on the highway, I have reached down and touched that point on the bike and was surprised how much vibration was there. It felt like a jackhammer, at least on a couple of bikes. I’ve heard excessive vibration ruins iPhone cameras.
