I suspect they may be placed there to mount a Ring Lock onto. the lock remains on the frame,
and you ride with the key in the lock, then to immobilize the rear wheel,
close the hasp of the lock around the wheel, and remove the key.
no roll off thefts. very convenient.
I have an AXA Defender ring lock and a 1.4M long chain that adds the ability to lock up the front wheel
and put the chain around something solid, with a pin that fits in the other side from the lock Key. catches in a receiving socket.
Abus offers a similar ring lock setup.
My NL built Koga Miyata included a ring lock , when manufactured ..
