Question: What are the vents in the trunk for?

There are two vents in the trunk, under the carpet and below the tail lights. I have been getting water in the trunk through them although I replaced one and it is fixed but the other one is still letting water in. Question is can I safely seal the one off?

The hole are for breathing. The trunk need to beath. The hole should have a check valve in the. If not then I would go to the dealer and buy the right ones.
