They just hold the locking spring in place on the hose before assembly. After the hoses are connected the retainer ring breaks loose and becomes useless.

I had wondered about that myself but figured it was something left over during assembly.

They're the remainder of the shipping plugs that where removed during assembly.
In fact I cut mine off last time I cleaned under the hood.
