What are random Snaps on D90 Soft Top for?

I've owned my 1994 D90 soft-top for about a year now and have always wondered what function the random snaps serve throughout the truck that are non full soft-top related. I have them on the doors (below sliding windows) - is this for some sort of soft front driv/pass window configuration? Also noticed them on underside of middle roll bar (behind head), on the back tail gate etc.

It came with the already mentioned full soft top, and a bimini - but neither utilize these snaps. My best guess is these are for different soft top configurations that it may have had at one time or another, that were lost or worn out over the years - but I haven't been able to find much of anything about it online.

Can anyone explain this to me or link to a diagram etc. of all of the top configurations.

There was a factory tonneau cover that probably made use of a bunch...

I just looked at a picture of the tonneau cover and that makes a lot of sense, thanks!

That and a factory bimini that made use of the snaps above your head along the roll bar.

My '95 fastback soft top utilizes every snap on the car--above the doors, behind the head, on the alpine rail, on the rail in the tub--and, of course, it still flops around like an ill-fitting suit and flaps noisily like a howling banshee at any speed above, say, about 7 mph.

You should also have snaps around the defrost vents. Not sure why the factory would want to cover these up.
