The air tubes hook up with your pollution pump. Until your engine gets to operating temp the pump draws exhaust gases and recycles it through the intake via EGR valve. The air tubes are not a necessity for your truck to run properly, but don't plug them. But if your inspection mechanic wants to be a dick, he can fail you for them not being hooked up.
