[Healeys] Holes in Frame Rails

Speaking of holes, my BJ8 has a few (apparently) factory-installed holes in the frame rails.  These would make sense for drainage, but they're (supposed to be) plugged with rubber plugs.  But, our BN2 does not have these holes--anyone know why?  BMC's idea of a chassis lightening program?  Do others' BJX cars have them (could be someone drilled them, but they look "factory")?
