I’ve noticed several over the past 6 months. This one was hanging out deep in a coral colony. Obviously much larger than a Vermetid snail. The worm inside reminded me of bristle worms but much thinner and smaller.

That's awesome! I'd say that's a vermitid snail... and that's one great way to rid yourself of one. Always wondered what they look like inside... mystery solved!
I usually take a pair of hemostats to them or glue them shut. I might have to rethink my strategy...
