Forestay chainplate hooks?

Novice question:

My forestay chainplate (not 100% on the terminology here - the metal piece to which my forestay attaches and my anchor is secured) has two "extra" hooks.

What is the intended purpose? Are these for anchoring? Something spinnaker-related? Hanging Christmas lights?
