For a few months my wife has complained that her left pantleg smells like exhaust when she rides on the back of my 1970 CL350. Doggone if she ain't right - I could feel two places where exhaust is puffing out. So I remove the pipes today (with an expectation of repair). But instead I find two vent holes that look *very* deliberate by design. Pic below of where I could feel the leaks, and pic below of the vents.
My questions: (1) was this indeed a deliberate design, and if so (2) what's the purpose? I'm kinda wondering if these are to provide a way for moisture and/or exhaust acid to vent. Thoughts?

I actually had a short SS pipe welded to the lower muffler hole so I could attach a hose like the upper has, drains well and avoids the exhaust smell
