Are these cutouts in the cage used for anything?

I installed shoulder belts on my 2006 by drilling and mounting a bolt to the stock cage. I was thinking of drilling lower on the cage and moving the belt lower for my son. There is this hexagon cutout hole on the stock cage, and I was looking at drilling in place of that cutout.

My question is, are those cutouts used for anything such as adding accessories (cab enclosure, etc.)? I don't want to drill and eliminate this cutout in case it is used for something that I may want to add. I have taken a couple pictures to make it more clear of what I'm talking about. Any input appreciated.

They are for nutserts, possibly for the hard rear window or the rear tubes that run from the cage to the bed rails.

I know of the holes your talking about but not sure what they are for. Must be for some factory accessory

Thanks for the info guys. Although I'll probably never use them, I'll leave them alone for now just in case.
