Default When do these rivets get set?

Just a question on the two rivets either side of the shoulder seat belt lugs... Why do we need to leave them open and when do they get riveted?
Thanks

You set the ones on F-01406C after you put in the seat belt lug. See step 7 on page 30-06 (12x ...3-3.5). You set the ones on F-01406 L and R in step 3 on page 30-07. They want you to delay setting them so you can set them according to their rivet direction in Figure 1 - to prevent pillowing of the skin.

Thanks Mark, for the life of me I couldn't pick up when they should be set.
Couldn't see why they couldn't be set just wary after getting ahead a couple of times only to find I had to undo the work. 👍
