    I never have. I thought those where ejection ports for the gas to blow out?

    But I could very well be wrong about that.

    yep they are gas ports,when cleaning the bolt I use the firing pin to poke in the holes to make sure the holes aren't getting carboned up,just poke it in and work it back and forth a few times
