I would think that they were there to help in the alignment of the doors.  Only one bolt to tighten and loosed as you aligned the door. Then install or tighten the counter sunk screws when the door is straight

Just an update.

This is a picture of a hinge on B.# 1267, a very original 5000 mile car and the bolts are in place however, upon close inspection I notice that they are marked WILEY B which means that they were BSF, not UNF as I had thought.

  I never noticed the holes were threaded. I just used them to position the threaded plate while attempting to start the hinge screws. Maybe they were used for that and the extra screw removed after the hinge was in place.

  The earliest 100s have "flat" hinges. In addition to the 4 countersink screws securing the hinges to the door post there is a single hex head 5/16" UNF screw in the center of the hinge plate.  
  These screws can cause problems after they are installed because they can prevent the hinges from closing completely and can cause distortion of the hinge mount(s).
  I'm completely at a loss to understand a purpose for these screws ... does anyone have any idea why they are there?
