it's likely for several things....the primary one is likely air flow because the center area of the gap doesn't have any with the condenser/radiator/coolers behind there. So it blocks the airflow in the gap under the headlight which minusculy helps drag, mpg, etc lol. Could also be to keep crap from flinging in from the road but lesser likely use.
Doesn't hurt to get rid of them if you close the bumper gap up.
