vent plugs

Could possibly be vent plugs.
When they are fitted, the pressure is maintained. They can be removed to relieve it.

The valve-regulated battery is the most common type of sealed battery. It was developed for stationary and telecommunication battery applications. These types of sealed batteries have a spring-controlled valve that vents gases at a predetermined pressure. Typical pressure thresholds are from 2 to 5 psig, depending on the battery design. Although the term "valve- regulated" is often used synonymously to describe sealed lead-acid batteries, not all sealed batteries are valve-regulated. Some battery designs employ replaceable vent plugs or other mechanisms to relieve excess pressure.

sealing plugs

since my entening to proz i've never crossed with answers more reasoned and tempered than those of Jack's
but in my opinion in this particular case "sealing" sounds more profound
