Agreed, they are simply drilling the holes and plugging in small black plastic sleeves to give you the oval fit of the door lock. The doors are the simple storage doors found on all trailers. Lightweight fiberglass with foam fill. The lock mechs have a nut that you can tighten but be very careful as is it only a low grade material that can and will strip. They are simply relying on the tension of that nut and the face of the lock to hold it in place. A simple turn of a flat head screwdriver will turn the entire cylinder and unlock your door. I guess this is why they finally went to a motor coach style lock mechanism on the newer model years.
I thought about cutting holes and installing them, but I am also not storing a genny or high dollar item in these holds so figured if someone wants my chairs and lights they can have it with minimal damage. Though it's pretty hard to turn my locks now.
