Definitely a homemade "bodge" to mount a bottle on an aero profile frame tube. The paint scratch going across the upper hole seems that it could been a resut of s drill bit "walking" on the previous owner when drilling the hole. Rivnuts should work, but then, hanging the bottle off to the side in the wind kills all the purpose of that aero shaped frame tube.
I'd just have the holes brazed over and painted over and use an underseat bottle holder instead on the bike, but unfortunately brazing over the holes isn't always an available option to many C&Vers.....
