Why are there holes in rear bumper?

Can anyone tell me the purpose of these holes & indentations in the OEM rear bumper (inside the bumperettes) of my 95 YJ?

nice drain holes for water that gets into the frame...I spray used motor oil into them after cleaning out the frame from wheeling.

Doesn't seem like it would drain very well with the holes being that high. Maybe during manufacturing those holes served a purpose. Probably so that it would be easy to install something else? Or the previous owner put them there for other reasons?

^^ lol, that made my day

as in regards to the holes, there on every wrangler I've seen. it so you can attach aftermarket bumpers and stuff there when your bumperetts get ruined and you want a different bumper.
