Thanks for your info.
Perhaps the accessories receiving ventilation, as mentioned by B747skipper, are indeed the pipes used for the engine inlet anti-ice system as mentioned by Airgxs.
I believe you can see the hot anti-ice bleed air pipes around the front of this engine.

Regarding my question about whether or not CFM-56 engines were also used on civilian airliners, well, I believe I found the answer myself. Some Airbus A320s use CFM-56 engines, and some of these engines have similar exhausts/vents in their cowlings, and some of them don't.
