Engine starter

it's a long story but I need to replace the starter on my Yanmar diesel.  I have a rebuilt starter now, but what I am wondering is what these two ports are for?  See photos.

    Looks like drain holes in case water gets in the stater

    That seems like a reasonable answer.  I hope you are right.  That (salt) water got into the starter is the reason I am replacing it.
