adjustment holes in lower rear shock mount ?

Ok I noticed for some time now the holes in the lower rear shock mount
and really was not sure if these holes were just to lighten the assembly
or if they are actually for some sort of pivot point adjustment.
I will try to take a picture of what I'm seeing and will ad to the thread.

If you can explain what these are for please do ...

2017 DL 650 , Shad 23 side bags, Givi crash bars, 32 watt LED driving lights ,
Goldwing pegs, silver front fender, Lazer cut aluminum Chain guard, Madstad 20" windshield
light smoke tint , Blu/blk Driven Racing Billet bar ends, Dbl Take adventure mirrors on order,
Stock exhaust for now. Yoshimura 3/4 system cooking in the oven.

They likely are to mount the centerstand brackets.

Are you referring to the H/S dial in this pic?

I kind of thought so but have never seen a wee with a center stand in person
or in photo from this photo angle.

Thanks for clarification. jake
