What kind of thing is logic in an ontological sense?

The existence of logic seems somewhat mysterious. It's this thing that seems to exist, but unlike other things that exist, it doesn't seem to exist anywhere in specific or in any tangible form. Further, while it is easy to mock Plato for mysticism when he posits perfect forms existing in some kind of mysterious Platonic Realm, that's actually uncomfortably close to a description of what logic is often seen as.
