The two "holes" at the end of the fuelsage are actually APU exhaust outlets. The aft section of the aircraft contains the refueling consoles. A "boom" operator will lie on his belly and "fly" the boom that would feed fuel to refueling aircraft. Thanks to everyone who emailed me on this. Interesting to learn a new thing everyday!
