That's my suspect too... but it is also true that Toyota put the airbox feed in the left opening, so probably is not just for looks and some pressure is there...

You can do three things with those holes:

1.) Close them off and try your best to fit the curve of your vehicle.
Not possible!

2.) Catch the air and route it to your brakes.
I already catch the air for brakes with 2 duct beside the central intercooler

3.) Leave it.
I'll probably try to increase flow there with scoops like the red Porsche above...
