Default Two oilers instead of one?

Why are there two holes available to mount oilers above the piston on my engine?

One hole has an oiler and the other has a plug. The engine is an early Desjardins “Call of the West”. More info on this engine at:

I do not know the purpose of two oiler holes, and hope one of you has the answer. Thanks, Johnny

there are 2 possoble answers that immediately come to mind - 1) gas relief: the port closer to the hopper would be able to relieve blow-by pressure before it would reach the oiler. 2) The forward hole would provide a direct oiling ability of the rings and the wrist pin before start up.
