"." is also the character used in M-x calendar RET to jump to today's
date.

You can insert a dot with C-q . in the calendar.

You can also customize the local map:

;; Unbind "." in Org's calendar:
(define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map (kbd ".") nil)

;; Bind "@" to `calendar-goto-today':
(define-key org-read-date-minibuffer-local-map
            (kbd "@")
            (lambda () (interactive) (org-eval-in-calendar '(calendar-goto-today))))

HTH,
