Hiya tazzy, the voice thingy is working on mine so I guess these are bits left over from a higher spec car, although I thought mine was fairly top end, the only thing missing are heated seats.

They do exactly the same thing with the Clio. Interestingly some come without a switch to dim the dash lights though when you take off the plastic cover that houses the headlight height adjustment where this other switch would be it has the wiring. I put one with a switch on and it works!
I believe it is the same with for example the Renault Clio 182 Trophy these come without the automatic windscreen wipers. Well not strictly true they have all the hardware/software for them bar the actually wiper stalk itself. Fit one of these and it works.

So sometimes it is worth finding out what these connectors are for.

Pretty sure that they are the diagnostic connection point. Got them on my Megane as well.

Most diagnostic connection points have a blanking cover to reduce the risk of damage to the ECU . The connectors could be for climate control, etc.
Plus the diagnosis conector would have more pins or connections
