vent in door, lower rear, xl trim 94.5 ?

Can anyone tell me what the slotted 'vent' in the door panel of my XL truck is? on XL the trim doesn't go all of the way to bottom of the door, so the 'vent' i'm asking about is below trim and basically slots in the metal of the door. It also has four screws around it too almost as though it would have a speaker or something bolted up to it on side of door (but it doesn't, speaks are up higher and more toward from of truck). If reached inside door and it feels like nothing is there and also like it may be covered in plastic on inside too?

I'm not talking about the drain holes at bottom of door. We're those what you were referring to? I had thought the ones I was asking about were just a vent until I reached in and felt plastic along back (inside of door). Then was confused and wondered if maybe it was for some option that cl doesn't have.

I'm considering covering them from inside of door with thick (sealed) material for noise purposes and wondering if that will be an issue ?

Shouldn't be, and I was referring to the louvered vent looking thing too, that's just my best guess on them,

It is a pressure release. Over the years their sealing of the cab got to be so good, it would pop your ears and make it difficult to close the door due to the build up of pressure. So they added those "vents". Behind the vents is a plastic is frame(held on w 4 screws you see) with a neoprene flap to shed water.

There is another vent just under the door latch. That lets the air out of the door.

The SuperDuty went to a similar vent in the back of the cab to release pressure
