Softtop rear bow snaps

I just got done installing an oem brand new never installed softop with same new never installed factory hardware I purchased from a member on here. He got me everything I needed to go from hardtop only to softop. I installed everything all went smooth after the top sat in the sun a few hours. My question is on the rear bow there are 6 snaps. On my softop there are only 4. What are the other 2 snaps suppose to be used for?

Some folks roll up the rear window instead of taking it out - You can unzip the sides and leave the zip attached across the top.

The other 2 snaps are for detachable straps that loop around and hold the rear window panel when it is rolled up.

I've never done this on my TJ - had a roll-up rear plastic window on another vehicle and the straps end up marking the window panel.
