Mysterious vacuum hose ports

I notice what appears to be two open vacuum hose ports sticking out near the top of the timing belt cover, anyone know what these are and if they should be closed?

Grazie.

Been covered. It is for variable speed steering. Not on these models.

Alright thanks. I'll try to do a search for similar posts and see if I can't figure out the site's searching capabilities.

I guess I could also use google's command keyword "site" and point it here, like (note, no spaces after colon)

"site:my.is vacuum hose"
