Ha! Yes, all of the above. First, outsde the tube opposite the valve stem. Looked like a pinch, I took blame for that one when I mounted the tires. The others were 2 in the side wall region (mysteries) and one outside. On the last one, found a tiny goat head that I removed with a finger nail. I'm not sure if it contributed. For the life of me, I had a hard time finding where it might have penetrated the tire tread. All the tube punctures except the first one looked like straight on punctures. The first one looked like a pinch.
